McDermott, who made 753 appearances for the Mariners before retiring at the end of the 2006/07 season, was awarded the PFA Merit Award at the ceremony, putting him in an elite band of winners including Pele, Bill Shankly and George Best.

"To be in the same company as someone like Pele - it's absolutely amazing," McDermott told the Grimsby Telegraph. "I'm very flattered to get the award - I'm gobsmacked actually."
