Reds Ladies celebrated at their end-of-season party in their usual flamboyant style with players, officials, friends and family gathering to recognise the various achievements over the season.
Team manager Paul Mackenzie delivered his thank you speech ahead of the presentations, paying tribute to the players and the many sponsors who had supported Reds Ladies this term. He also thanked all at Workington Town for the invaluable help provided throughout the season, particularly the use of the Derwent Park facilities.
First onto the stage were three of the players who, in addition to their duties on the pitch, do a lot of work behind the scenes helping to keep the club ticking over. Treasurer Linzi Donaldson, Social Media editor Chloe Henderson and Secretary Naomi Foster were presented with a seasonal flower arrangement in recognition of their unstinting efforts with the administration.
Morgan McGrady collected two awards on the night – the Top Scorer accolade and Young Player of the Year Award.
There were many contenders for the young player award with the large influx of youngsters making some excellent contributions to the team over the season.
The manager’s Player of the Year trophy went to Sophie Douglas.
Goalkeeper Laura Miller had an outstanding season and was rightly recognised as the Players’ Player of the Year.
And skipper Naomi Foster was voted Reds Ladies’ Player of the Year after a very consistent campaign at the heart of the defence.
Well over a hundred people enjoyed the party atmosphere with entertainment and music part of a brilliant evening.
There was also a party within a party as the celebrations coincided with long serving Becky Scott’s birthday.
A wonderful array of prizes were distributed following the raffle, with the club coffers boosted considerably by those buying tickets.
