A large gathering of players, wives, girlfriends and officials attended the annual Bow Street Football Club dinner at the Hafod Arms in Devils Bridge on May 13th.
All enjoyed a magnificent three course meal and the Chairman, Wyn Lewis, thanked the Hafod’s owners, Dewi and Nicole Gwynne for the great welcome and warm hospitality.
The Chairman thanked all at the club who had contributed during the season both on and off the field. He also announced that the club’s Junior Coordinator, Amlyn Ifans had received the Ceredigion Sports Council award of ‘Coach Of The Year’.
The first award of the evening was for ‘Clubman Of The Year’. This proved an extremely popular announcement as it was awarded to Stephen Harrison, club Treasurer and stalwart of the Reserve team who has given over 20 years service to the club, both on and off the field.
Barry Williams and Richard Lucas of the First team management, announced the awards relating to the senior team. They also thanked the third member of the management team, Chris Howard, who is standing down after this season due to business commitments. He will be replaced by Dylan James.
The Reserve team were congratulated on an excellent season in which they finished as runners up to Bont in the league. This was the highest ever finish that Bow Street Reserves had ever had in the league. The popular management duo of Rhodri Jones and Leighton Reynolds announced the awards in relation to the reserve team.
The evening concluded to the delight of all present, with an inspirational and thought provoking speech by the club’s Life President, Lord Elystan Morgan. He congratulated the club for its immense contribution to the community, stating that it was much appreciated.
