NEAL Bishop rounded off a splendid week by picking up a host of York City end of season awards.

The midfielder, scorer in the Minstermen's 1-0 win over Oxford, was voted the Billy Fenton Clubman of the Year.

The trophy, which has been awarded for the last 34 years, was presented to the 25-year-old by Billy's widow, Margot Fenton. In 278 games for City between 1951 and 1958, Billy netted 124 goals.

Bishop, named for the England National Game XI squad last week, was also selected as the players' player of the year.

Defender Danny Parslow was CPP's Player of the Year - a gong handed out to the player who makes the most significant contribution representing the club in the community.

He was presented with his trophy by Wendy Capelin, CPP's head of corporate human resources.
