Another of the Tigers consistent performers, Nathan Massey, took home the CTSC committee player of the year award, sponsored The Black Swan, Normanton, while young half-back Jake Trueman was presented with the 2018 special achievement award (sponsored by Carpet Magic) after his breakthrough year in the senior side.

Under 19s player of the year was Lewis Peachey with this award sponsored by Faye’s Sandwich bar.
