Luke Cresswell and Jono Smith both won three awards at Barrow Raiders’ presentation night, confirming themselves as the stand-out players in what was a tough season on the pitch.

The event was held at The Kill One on Duke Street, just down the road from the Raiders' Craven Park ground and Cresswell was named as the club's Player of the Year after a season in which he shone after coming back from an horrific knee injury that kept him out for a year.

The full back also took the Players' Player of the Year and Local Rising Star prizes on the night.

Powerful forward Smith was named as The Mail's Player of the Year award, while also taking the trophies for the James 'Yorkie' Coyle Award for Dedication and the Supporters' Player of the Year.

Winger Deon Cross also had a successful night, as he was named Most Improved Player, while he also claimed his prize for finishing as Barrow's top try scorer this season, with 14 in 30 games.

Half-back Jake Carter, who impressed after making his debut at Widnes in June, won the Young Player of the Year award, while Australian forward Jarrad Stack was presented with the Coach's Merit award.

Papua New Guinea international Wartovo Puara was named as the Raiders' Man of Steel for 2019.
