Presentation Evening

Votes at all Time High for PRESENTATIONS

Presentation Evening Saturday 30th April 2016

The end of season presentation evening took place at Sandyacres Sports and Social Club on Saturday night with a 7pm start.

The evening had an introduction from Don Crosbie who was heckled with good banter from Danny Lye shortly into the introduction saying he had already used 3 minutes of his allocated time (anyone would think that Don can talk for England)to which don handed the microphone over to Jason Whitmore ,the under 18 Ryman Youth Team manager. His recollection of the season were summed up admirably to include the Cup Final appearance of the Lucas Fettes cup at Sutton United for his lads who were narrowly beaten finalists by a scoreline of 4-3 to Staines Town the red hot favourites to take this trophy.

All of his team were congratulated with great regular applause from the 120+ attendance of the evening with outstanding performances and awards being presented to the following ;

The main event of the evening was again hosted by Don Crosbie ably assisted by our chairman Derek Pestridge .Firstly it was with great thanks to all the stewards and back room staff for their efforts and contributions from the season,without whom none of this seasons participation in the Southern Counties East League would have been possible.
