Our annual season dinner and presentation was held on Friday 13th May.
After welcome drinks at the Railway Inn, by way of a thank you for their support during the season, everyone headed to the newly re-opened Elliot House Hotel.
Following a lovely dinner, outgoing Chair Jo took to the stage to deliver a summary of the season. Jo was proud to announce that it had been the most successful year so far for the Club, with Panthers gaining promotion, Tigers finally earning their place in division 2 and Cougars very narrowly missing out on the automatic promotion places.
Jo then handed over to each team Captain for them to give their own summary and thoughts of the season, for their respective teams. Emma, Amie and Lucy all agreed what an enjoyable season it had been for everyone and described their various highs and lows, before awarding their Captain’s Choice trophies.
The winners for 2010/11 were:
Cougars – Vikki Ford
Panthers – Debbie Drinkell
Tigers – Holly Lemon
Jo continued the presentation with the main trophies, following nominations from the whole Club:
Players' Player (Cougars): Erin Beale
Players' Player (Panthers): Vicki Hastings
Players' Player (Tigers): Holly Lemon
Most Improved Player: Louise Piner
Club Personality: Amie Hoskin
Member of the Year: Lucy Smale
Jo also took the opportunity to thank the Club umpires for their help and support, and in their absence thanked Helen Tuxford, June Jacks and Gemma Cliffe.
By far the night was our best end of season gathering to date, and it was nice to see so many husbands and partners supporting the Club. Special thanks was given to Kerry and her team for organising a lovely evening.
