Sheen Lions finished the 2011-12 season with our Presentation evenings on the 17th May for the older teams and 23rd May for the younger age groups. This year 548 people came to the events and we gave out 370 trophies.
Football is a team game and each player depends on his team mates but for fun we do give out some special awards to boys in each team and you can see the Special Player Awards List here.
The Presentation evening is the one event in the year when the Club comes together and as always the Club showed its appreciation for the huge amount of time and effort that our Secretary Sarah Street puts in to enable so many children to play football.
Afterwards Sarah said:
“I also want to thank you all for you kind words and gifts. Wine, champagne, chocolates, flowers and jewellery in abundance. They are genuinely appreciated. I think I must be the luckiest Club Secretary in the League to have such a great bunch of people to work with.
Your support and help over the season and particularly in recent times has been terrific. Thank you. There’s a lot to do right now in preparation for next season but I know with us all working hard and pulling in the same direction, the work will get done and we can look forward to another terrific season in 2012/13.
Lastly, I want to thank Geoff for everything he has done. I couldn’t have a better right hand man working alongside me, and I know we are all sending our love and best wishes to Jane and the family and wishing Geoff the very speediest of recoveries. I’m certain we’ll have him back on the touchline, where he belongs, in no time.”
SheenLions.com would particularly like to echo Sarah’s thoughts for Geoff. He has written most our our weekly News bulletins this season and this is only one of the many things he does to help build our Club and support all the people at Sheen Lions.
A particular Congratulations to our teams that collected League medals today at Imber Court.
