Billy Bauros also picked up a special award for playing in all 39 games for Linlithgow Thistle this season. A remarkable achievement. Specially engraved whisky glasses were presented to Allan Walker and Brian Gibson for their successful management of the team, as a small token of the Club’s appreciation.
Satirical awards preceded the serious trophies, with trophies being presented to Gary Peacock for Banger of the Year, Paul Wood for Shout of the Season and…Iain Cartwright for his howling Miss of the Season…of which a video was played to remind the audience…and a slow motion replay! It was presented and received in good spirit, to the delight of the guests.
Guests were treated to free drinks on arrival, an excellent evening’s entertainment from DJ Steve Beattie and a delicious buffet from Oliphants the Bakers. Linlithgow Bowling Club were again fabulous hosts. Derek Oliver thanked all the sponsors for their generosity.
The evening was completed with the announcement that the LEAFA Divisional Player of the Year was awarded to Ryan Russell as the worthy winner of the prestigious title, as voted for by all teams in Premier 2 Division. Ryan will pick up his award at LEAFA Presentation Dinner on 29th May.
The Club wishes to thank everyone in attendance for their continued support of Linlithgow Thistle.
