Christmas Party 2011

After Amsterdam GAC's most successful season and the capturing of the mens European Shield, there was much to celebrate at the club Christmas Party on Saturday December 17th.

Over 75 players and partners attended the party, where after an excellent 3 course meal, the end of year player awards were presented. First up were the Holland Ladies, and captains Mary McPherson and Deirdre White, who were quick to praise all their team after a fantasic season. 

Sheila Boylan picked up the Most Improved Player of the Year, Marina Hol received the Non-Irish Player of the Year, and finally the big award of the evening, Ladies Player of the Year, was presented to Heather McCormack.

The mens teams were next, where the European title winning season of the Amsterdam A's and the debut season of Amsterdam B's were both celebrated. With a record number of new players joining the mens team this year, it was no surprise that all three mens awards were picked up by new players.

Colm Brennan was named New Player of the Year.

Pete Jansen received the Non-Irish Player of the Year and the Neville Ducie lookalike award!

Finally, Neville Ducie took home the main award of the evening, Mens Player of the Year.

A great night rounded off plenty of musical entertainment and Christmas cheer by Amanda, Conor, Derek Mc, Niamh, Patrick, Rob, and Simon. 

Merry Christmas to all at the club, and roll on 2012!
