The season ticket holders' player of the season awards were presented to the winners before Gloucester took on Saracens on Saturday afternoon at Kingsholm.
The Doug Wadley trophy for the Player of the Year was awarded to captain Adam Balding. The 25 year-old joined Gloucester in the summer from Leicester and has been in top form for the Kingsholm club during the 2004/05 season.
Balding won the trophy with more than 70 per cent of the votes, with Andy Hazell the runner-up.
Nick Wood was awarded the Young Player of the Year trophy after taking possession of the number one shirt in recent months.
The 22 year-old loose head prop has come up against some of the toughest tight-heads around and made the position his own during the second half of the season.
The Young Player of the Year award was a very close call, and Wood took only 10 votes more than Brad Davies, who came runner-up in the voting.
The two awards were voted for by Gloucester's 7,200 season ticket holders, and votes were up 13 per cent on last year.
Commenting after the game about his Player of the Year award, Adam Balding said: "From a personal point of year it's been a good year for me. I just wish that had come together with a better year for the team. I've settled in really well at Gloucester, and it's a pretty special place to play rugby. Knowing that this award has been voted for by the fans means a huge amount, and I'd like to thank everyone who's been behind this year."
