Presentation Night – The Winners


The AFC Rushden & Diamonds annual presentation evening was held at The Sharnbrook Hotel on Friday May 15th 2015.

With a DVD of all the season’s goals playing on the big screens over 200 supporters, management and players from the Community, U18, U21 and First team squads enjoyed a 2 course buffet and the chance to reflect on the season followed by the presentation of the annual awards. There was a video message from Chairman Ralph Burditt, who was unable to attend due to his forthcoming wedding as well as end of season awards for the Community, U18s, U21s and First team, as well as the Volunteer of the Season award and a special presentation to Chas Rust as he steps down from the Board after four years.

A wonderful evening was had by all, and we’d like to thank everyone for making the evening such a great success.

Special mention is due to everyone at The Sharnbrook Hotel for hosting the event for us, to Rick Nunley for compèring the presentations, to Club sponsors Hevey and Fuelsell and also to Adrian House at PW House Jewellers for their dedicated and continued support.
