Pitchero Non-League Team of the season defender Andy White has thanked the support he has received to make the final 11.
The right-back played for Nantwich Town in the 2016/17 season got 5% of the votes to scrape into the final 11 ahead of Sean Raggett and Dan Scarr of Stourbridge.
After being named in the team White said: “I would like to say thank you to all the fans for the local support because I wouldn’t be where I am today without them.
“I was also selected in the Evo-Stik team of the year for the 2nd year in a row this season, so to add this award to my collection is a very proud achievement for me.”
Here’s your @PHNonLeague fans team of the season as voted for by you!

The former Crewe Alexandra youth team player has played over 200 games for the Dabbers and was part of the team that made the end of the season playoff semi-final, only to lose 2-0 to Spennymoor Town.
But for the upcoming season, White will be plying his trade elsewhere as he has just announced that he has signed for National League North newcomers Southport FC.
He explained: “In regards to the 2017/18 season I’ve recently signed for Southport and I’m relishing the challenge to play in the league above.
“I was approached by teams in the National League and the North, but I see Southport as a team that belongs at the top of Non-League football with the fans and the set up they have there so I’m really excited to get started.”
White also took to social media to thank the support from Nantwich Town FC through his time at the club.
The last 3 years @TheDabbers have been a pleasure and I’ve made some great memories with the players, staff and fans… all the best! 💚⚽😊
