Bantams skipper Gary Jones won City's 2012/2013 season Player of the Year title this Tuesday evening at the club's annual end-of-season awards evening.


In front of a sold out audience, the main Player of the Year title was one of six awards collected by Jones in total as the 35 year-old was fully rewarded for an outstanding season in City's engine room.


The Players' Player of the Year award went to Jones' fellow Liverpudlian Stephen Darby.


Jones said: "It has been an amazing night for me. To win six awards in one ceremony is absolutely brilliant - I am delighted.


"We have some great players here so I really didn't expect to win all these awards tonight.


"I have got to know Stephen (Darby) really well since we both came here and he thoroughly deserves his award as well.


"He has been really consistent this season and he is a great person to have in the changing room."


Other highlights of the evening included apprentice Louie Swain, who, alongside Scott Brown, has been awarded a professional contract for next season, winning the Youth Team Player of the Year award and Carl McHugh picking up the Bradford City Supporters Trust Under 25s Player of the Year.


Among the other awards collected on a jovial night for the football club, Ticket Office Manager Mick Lamb was given his moment in the spotlight when he was named the Supporters Board's Unsung Hero of the season for his tireless work so far during City's mammoth season.
