Hellingly HoundDogs gathered at Hailsham Town Football Club on the afternoon of Sunday the 2nd of September to celebrate the 2017/18 season.
With over 50 players and family members gathered the awards were announced. Luke Boorer, Chairman started the afternoon thanking all the coaches and Committee members who had put so much effort into the club over the past 12 months. Next up were the awards for the U 11’s Flag team. All winners collected their trophy along with there 2017/18 playing Dog Tag, issued to every player. The winners were:
Manager’s Award – Hayden Puttick
Offence MVP – Max Lewis-Clements
Defence MVP – Charlie Fairway
Player’s Player – Benjamin Boorer
Next up was the turn of the U17’s Youth Team. Again, the same as the U11’s, all players received their Dog Tags and then came the trophies which were awarded to the following:
Manager’s Award – Ned Foster – Safety
Defence MVP – Stan Wilson – Corner Back
Offence MVP – Riley Davis – Wide Reciever
Player’s Player – Harrison Kane – Linebacker
Luke Boorer then added “We would like to thank all the Committee and Coaches who have given up hours of their lives to help these kids achieve their goals and the goals of the club over the last 12 months. Without these people working tirelessly the club would not have the footing that it does today. We would also like to thank the parents who get players to tournaments to represent the club. Personally I love the Award evening. It’s a great time to celebrate all the successes that the players have achieved over the last year. It’s hard to single out just four players from each team. All the players have given so much and I believe they all deserve an award or at least a mention, but unfortunately that is not possible. We return to training this week and we have had lots of email and messages from potential new players, which is exciting as we look to expand the club.”
The teams return to training on Wednesday the 5th of September in preparation for the 2018/2019 season. If you are interested in playing, please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org or through social media.
We would also like to thank Aarron Jones for taking time out of his busy day to act as our photographer.
