Presentation Evening 2008

The 2008 season may have been a bit of a wash out, but the end of season presentation evening on Saturday 1st November at Charnock Richard Golf Club has once again proved to be an outstanding success, with around 100 people in attendance. Despite a power failure in the early part of the proceedings the, now traditional sports quiz, was won after a second tie break, by Adam Gregory and Jamie Maitland, who just edged out Declan Tracey`s Under 13`s team.
The most successful team was the Under 10`s who finished  runners up in their age group and who provided the bulk of the Under 11`s team as well. Both the Under 17`s and Under 13`s reached the semi final stage of their respective competitions, and  both lost to the eventual winners. As such it can be argued that both ages groups are therefore one of the best in the whole Palace Shield competition.
Awards are always difficult to give out in what is essentially a team game, and as managers we have a difficult choice to make at times:
Award winners were:
 Under 10`s Player of the Season        Robert Unsworth
                     Most Improved Player       Nathan Green
Under 11`s Player of the Season         Patrick Bibby
                    Most Improved Player       Jessica Tracey
Under 13`s Player of the Season        Alex Weetman
                    Most Improved Player       Mathew Holt-Rodgers
Under 15`s Player of the Season        Tom Foster
                    Most Improved Player       Danny Flanagan
Under 17`s Player of the Season        Tom Potter
2 nd XL      Player of the Season         Tony Goodman
                   Most Improved Player        Alex Weetman
                   Young Player of the Year   Alex Weetman
The organisation was once again spot on and all credit to Lynn Norris and Ian Bradley for their hard work, with support from all the team managers.
