Tom Eastman has scooped Colchester United's Player of the Year award for the second season running.

The talented centre-back, who played every minute of every U's game this season, picked up his accolade at the club's end-of-season dinner at the Weston Homes Community Stadium last night.

He was voted by Colchester fans as their leading player in the 2014-15 campaign, where Tony Humes' side secured their League One status on the final day of the season.

Eastman also won both the Home and Away Colchester United Supporters Association Player of the Year prizes.

Gavin Massey won the Players' Player of the Year accolade, while Sammie Szmodics was named Young Player of the Year.

Drey Wright claimed the Goal of the Season award for his cracker against Gillingham in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy, while Frankie Kent was named Community Player of the Year.
