Last night was the Marple Athletic presentation night at Acton Court Hotel. It was a cracking awards do, every bit as exciting and professionally hosted as any of the business awards bashes I get involved in. Walk up stings, passionate speeches, audience participaton and an auction. Alan Keegan, an Under 7s Dad, and the MC at the Theatre of Dreams did a boss job hosting it.
High spot, proudest fatherly moment in the world: Under 9s player of the season as chosen by the managers, Clive Breed and Padraig Walsh, ladies and gentleman: Joe Taylor.
For the parents player of the year, like most people, I voted for Ryan Knott, a great lad. No nonsense centre forward full of running and honest endeavour. And a scorer of great goals this season.
