The Club celebrated the 2016/17 season on Saturday night at our black tie Annual Dinner held at The Grosvenor, Victoria. The season saw the Club consolidate last year’s promotion to the London North West 2, ensuring the Club will continue to compete in the Level 7 league next year. Another promising sign was the number of new playas joining the Club and contributing throughout the season.
As is tradition, a number of awards were presented on the night:
The Club recognised Stephen Hanlon for his outstanding service to the Club on and off the field spanning many years; something all playas can all aspire to. The Club will be presenting him with an engraved tankard
Playas’ Playa – Jack Flanagan for regular outstanding performances and match-deciding contributions and fierce desire to win
Coaches’ Playa – Sean Baker for his no-nonsense style approach and incredibly high and consistent level of physical commitment and performance
Club Man of the Year – David Wilson for staunch efforts in running the clubs finances (rumours of a surplus for the year could not be confirmed) and going above and beyond
Although unable to make the dinner, New Playa of the Year was awarded to Sam Crawley-Tolchard for his commitment to the Club shown in his debut season, both on the pitch and at training
Below is a reminder of how the league table ended up:
