Matty Godden paid tribute to his teammates, coaches, supporting staff and fans on Saturday night after picking up all four End of Season awards.


Godden took home the Season Ticket Holders Player of the Season, Supporters Association Player of the Season, BoroChat Player of the Season and Players Player of the Season Award.


The striker made a huge impression in his debut season for the club, scoring 21 goals across the campaign.


“Obviously it is a great reward after a disappointing day but after a few days or so, I will reflect on it very positively. It has been a very, very good season for me personally and I have got a lot of people to thank for that - the gaffer, Glenn, the Chairman for bringing me in, all the staff and of course the fans.


“All the boys were saying bring a suitcase for the awards! Obviously to get a clean sweep is very nice and it is the first time I have been rewarded for a good season as Ebbsfleet didn’t have any awards last year so it is definitely a season I will remember fondly.


“It is lovely to get the recognition and I just want to kick on now.”


Despite the success, Godden thinks he still has more to show and believes the team are in a strong position for next season.


“I came back into the EFL to push myself and I have done that and more. I feel very, very comfortable here now and I still feel I have a lot more to give.


“You want to progress at football clubs and you want to keep getting better and better and better.


“When we look back on it we will recognise the progression and I know it is disappointing now but I think the fans have had a lot to cheer about.


“The six game winning streak away from home, the unbeaten run to push us up the league, winning eight in a row at home – we have done our best to give them everything possible.


“We have made a massive step forward from last season and the plan now will be to go even further again next year.”


Also honoured at the presentation was long serving players, Chris Day and Ronnie Henry


Both players were presented with a plaque by Lloyd Briscoe of the Supporters Association to commemorate their contribution, dedication and professionalism to the football club.
