Another brilliant night!
This year's dinner was held in the Broadway West Clubhouse on Friday 7th May. The meal started from 7.30pm. There was a full house of players, alickados and supporters - not forgetting physio, Gemma. As it was ostensibly the Awards Dinner, the customary rituals were duly followed with President, Mal Bell, welcoming everybody to our second Dinner to be held at Broadway West. The quality of the food provided by chef, Pete Cowey, and his sous-chef, Graham Crozier, was, as usual, excellent and well received. The odd drink was consumed by the assembled members, before the awards started. A list of recipients is to be found below. Following these awards, our converted auctioneer, Graham Crozier, did a fantastic job in teasing a sizeable amount of cash for the one-off GB Sevens shirt from Rio, suitably signed by the Falcons' Marcus Watson. Lastly, President Bell drew the tickets out for the Mike McCleery raffle ( he somehow ended up with three out of the four prizes!). A great night was had by all thanks to the hard work put in by our usual band of volunteers
