2019/20 End of Season Awards Review
Last night we celebrated our achievements in 2019/20 End of Season Awards from the comfort of our own homes.
Whilst 2019/20 may have been a game of two halves, we have lots to celebrate and reflect upon, even though we were unable to be together in person, social media brought us together.
The evening started with a thank you to everyone who has played their part in 2019/20, from the club’s volunteers, who range from brushing the pitch prior to games to selling programmes and Golden Gamble tickets on match days, to the Board of Directors who give up a great amount of time during the week whilst also earning a living.
Our sponsors and partners, who have supported us. Without your support (and guidance), the quality on the field would not have been as high. We wish you all well during these difficult times and look forward to continuing our relationships developed over a number of years, to the benefit of our local community.
Our players, coaches and staff, who have provided a rollercoaster of a season. Their efforts are always appreciated and thank you for buying into our club. We celebrate your achievements together, from our own households.
