Glenn Morris picked up the player of the season accolade at Crawley Town’s awards dinner last night.

But the Reds’ goalkeeper might find his place under more pressure next season after deputy Yusif Mersin produced a man of the match display as Harry Kewell’s side wound up their League Two campaign with a 1-1 draw that ended Mansfield’s slim play-off hopes.

Morris will be back between the posts on Wednesday when Crawley finish their season against Albion’s under-23s in the Sussex Senior Cup final.

Mersin, who made only his second League start of the campaign, is out of contract but his chances of landing a new deal were enhanced after he pulled off a string of saves against the Stags.

“It was a good opportunity to see Yusif and I thought he was excellent. His handling was good, he commanded his box well and his distribution was good,” said Kewell.

Reds were without six players through injury but deservedly led at the break when Karlan Ahearne-Grant, in the last League appearance of his loan spell, headed in Panutche Camara’s cross for his ninth goal of the season.

Kane Hemmings drew Mansfield level in the second half but Mersin and Co. kept them at bay, with Josh Doherty’s goal-line clearance to deny Hayden White the highlight of a resilient defensive effort. Kewell has decisions about several players as well as Mersin to make but that will wait until after Wednesday.

“We’re already planning for next season but the cup final is very important for us. It would be good to end the season with a trophy,” added Kewell.

Camara was named Young Player of the Year while Jordan Roberts’ volley in the FA Cup defeat to Wigan Athletic won Goal of the Season.
