Malcolm Dawes will be presented with his Pools Player of the Year trophy for 1973/74 this weekend to complete a very special hat-trick for the 1970s legend.

Having won the New York Cosmos Player of the Year award in 1972/73, Dawes returned to The Vic to scoop the same honour for Pools the following season before being voted as Workington’s Player of the Year in 1974/75.

And while the talented sweeper was given silverware to mark the awards at New York and Workington, he was never handed a keepsake from Pools – until now.

Dawes will be a special guest for Saturday’s game against Aldershot Town – where he also spent five years as a player – and will be presented with his 1973/74 Player of the Year gong at half time.

“I got to keep a trophy for a year at the time but nothing more permanent than that,” explained Dawes, who made 213 appearances for Pools between 1970 and 1975.

“It will mean a lot to me to pick up the award on Saturday because I was always a Pools fan growing up and this was my Club so it will be a real honour.

“I have the trophies from New York and Workington but getting this one from Pools will complete a very special hat-trick for me.”

Look out for Malcolm on the pitch at half time on Saturday and make sure you give him a great welcome.
