Winger Wright has been one of Borough Park’s stand out performers since Reds kick-started their revival in December. Wright reclaimed the award after winning last year too.
Goalkeeper Aaran Taylor was named away supporters’ player of the year, captain David Hewson picked up the players’ player gong and Dan Wordsworth won young player.
Manager Darren Edmondson paid tribute to his players as well as the fans, who have travelled 8,136 miles this year.
He said: “It’s a lot easier to be handing out awards if you’re top of the league.
“We have learnt a lot this year about each other. The players, directors and I know what is needed to improve and we will improve during the summer.
“It’s getting harder and harder to compete in this league because our finances are limited compared to others. We are trying to compete with teams with a lot more cash and in a more competitive catchment area.
“It’s hard to attract players, but we have a young squad of players who are learning all the time.”
Skipper Hewson praised the club’s backroom staff including physio Sue Pollock and kit man Alan Clark for their efforts throughout the eight-month campaign.
Workington’s future in the Conference North is still in the air following a goalless draw with Histon on Saturday.
Hewson said: “We have a big job at Worcester City, but we will do it and make sure we are in this league next season.”
