South China's Sheldon Thomas capped a fairytale week after claiming two of the top prizes in the Viceroy Cup awards yesterday. The sharp-shooting Caroliners striker was given best attacker and top scorer awards after playing a starring role in South China's successful Viceroy Cup campaign. The Trinidad and Tobago forward scored two goals in South China's 3-0 victory over Instant-Dict on Sunday, bringing his tally to four during his team's three Viceroy Cup matches. The two titles helped the stocky centre-forward to a cash payout totalling $44,000. Thomas pocketed $22,000 for each award. While Thomas was a straightforward choice for the best attacker category, picking a winner for the best defender award was less easy. Both goalkeeper Kevin Lok Kar-win and centre-half Yau Kin-wai distinguished themselves during Sunday's final, but Yau was given the nod for his sterling display in the Caroliners' defence. 'He had a great game on Sunday. He attacks you when he's marking you and if you're a centre-forward that's a complete nightmare,' said South China's Dale Tempest when asked about Yau. Instant's Ricky Cheng Sin Siu-chung was nominated Hong Kong's favourite player.
