Bristol Flyers 2018/19 awards night winners

The Bristol Flyers end of season awards took place on Tuesday, April 30th in the Sports Bar at Ashton Gate Stadium.

The informal event offered players, staff, volunteers and fans the opportunity to celebrate the 2018/19 regular season, with an interactive quiz on the big screen, along with a range of awards being handed out on the night.

View the award winners from the night below.

MOST VALUABLE PLAYER - FRED THOMAS

Fred Thomas took home MVP honours after an outstanding first season with the club, where he led the Flyers in scoring, averaging 17.2 points and 6.0 rebounds per game.

The American forward has been lighting up the league all season long with outrageous dunks and unbelievable plays, posting a season-high 32 point performance against the Glasgow Rocks in April.

DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE YEAR - JUSTIN GRAY

The 6ft5in American put pen to paper on his first professional contract with the Flyers and has led the way defensively this season, often being given the task of guarding the opposition’s best player.

Gray finished sixth in the league in blocked shots per game (1.1), whilst also posting 13.7 points per game to go along with 4.6 rebounds.

MOST IMPROVED PLAYER - MARCUS DELPECHE

Marcus Delpeche showed significant improvement on his numbers from last season. After joining the club mid-way through the 2017/18 campaign, Delpeche upped his scoring average from 3.6 to 7.8 this past season.


FAN'S PLAYER OF THE YEAR - DANIEL EDOZIE

As voted for by the newly-formed Flyers supporters club, Daniel Edozie took home the first ever Fan’s player of the year award.

This year Edozie averaged 7.9 points and 7.9 rebounds per game in his fourth year with the club, whilst also moving into the all-time career leaders in the BBL for rebounds per game (11th - 8.4) and offensive rebounds per game (7th - 3.2).
