Kenny Monaghan was named Club Person of the Year 2012 for his great work on and off the pitch during the year, keep it up!

Derek Lowry signed off on an extremely successful two year stint as mens team captain. Big thanks to him for all his hard work and congratulations to our new captain, Martin McClean.

The infamous Fat 5 and Hissy Fit 5 awards were duly handed out with Marty and Pete taking the top spots. Vague recollections of a Fat 5 group photo which luckily we don’t have to put up on this blog!!

A sad farewell to one of our club stalwarts, Chris Taz, who is Australia-bound with his new wife, Eveline. Thanks for everything Taz, best wishes to both of you, and hope to see you back here soon.

Big thanks to the Hole in the Wall for a fantastic 3 course Christmas dinner, and for their continued support to the club.

Thanks to everyone for coming, and well done on a great 2012 season…roll on 2013!

Merry Christmas to all!!!
