Pirtek Parramatta Eels club captain Tim Mannah has swept the pool with three awards at the 2013 Presentation Evening!

Tim was named the Blue and Gold Army's Player of the Year, as well as winning the Ray Price Community Award, and the Jack Gibson Coaches' Award.

"It's very humbling - we've got a great group of people here, and a lot of these awards could have gone to any guy," Tim said.

"So I'm glad to be recognised for the season, but I'm also looking forward to closing the book on the year and moving forward."

He says all the awards are very special to him, because of the people selecting him.

"The coaches' award means a lot, because the coaches ask a lot of us, so it's nice to be recognised for that side of things, and the community award is really humbling because it's one you could give to anyone, because we've got a great group of guys who always put their hands up for the community," he said.

"And I thank the Blue and Gold Army - I've always known how loyal and passionate the supporters are, and it's been a tough few years for them, but they always blow me away."

"They keep turning up, with great support and it's the supporters who are going to drive this place forward because we want to achieve success for them."

Tim also congratulated Darcy Lussick for winning the Ken Thornett NRL Players' Player award, the highest peer-voted honour.

"He started off the year solid, but has grown as the year gone on, playing bigger minutes and even played the last few weeks with a few bad groins, so he did well," Tim said.

"He's matured a lot this season - and people are going to see a lot better player in the future from him!"
