Bolton Wanderers scooped two honours at the Northwest Football Awards on Monday, with David Wheater taking the League One Player of the Year accolade.

The annual showpiece, which was held at Emirates Old Trafford cricket ground, celebrated the achievements of clubs in the local area from the 2016/17 campaign, in which Wanderers were promoted to the Championship after just one year away.

Wheater, who last season claimed the club's official Player of the Year award, in addition to numerous supporter-based prizes, saw off competition from Cian Bolger, Callum Camps and Peter Clarke, before being presented with the honour by former Trotters teammate Kevin Davies.

Earlier in the evening, the club had more reason to celebrate as the Bolton Wanderers Community Trust were awarded the Community Initiative of the Year honour for their #PositiveChances scheme.

There was to be no clean sweep, however, with Phil Parkinson narrowly missing out on the Manager of the Year award, which was instead handed to Blackpool boss Gary Bowyer.
