A presentation was also made to Sue Pugh and Sophie Church of the Barbershop in Watton as thanks for sponsoring the club this year.

The presentations took place on an afternoon which also consisted of a hard fought presidents fixture in which the Under-30s ran out victors over the Over-30s.

The clubman of the year award went to Connor Phillips for his hard work, dedication and commitment to the youth development. At 16 he is an inspiration to all the younger players and next season becomes eligible to play for the seniors.
