Academy Presentation Evening

At the end of another very successful season, around 200 players, coaches and families gathered at The Barratts Club in Northampton on Friday June 7th for the annual presentation evening.

There was a chance to reflect on the season with food and drinks before each coach, with 1st team Supporters’ Player of the Season Tom Lorraine, presented the awards. For each squad there were awards for Supporters Player of the Season, Players’ Player of the Season and Manager’s Player of the Season. There were some hard decisions and voting often split by just 1 or 2 votes but in some cases, it was impossible to decide so 2 awards were presented.

We would like to thank everyone who has helped the Academy this season; all the parents for their commitment to travelling and help on matchdays; all the coaches and assistants for their endless hard work and, of course, to the players who have worked incredibly hard and should be very proud of all they have achieved this season. We are looking forward to doing it all again next season, the future is looking very bright!

Also, huge thanks to Tom for giving up his evening to present the awards. He was finally able to receive his Supporter’s Player of the Season from Andy Peaks too having been unable to attend the Presentation Evening in May.

Finally, a very big thank you to The Barratts Club who provide matchday food for the players and for hosting another very enjoyable evening for us, we are looking forward to working with you again next season.
