Annual Sportsman’s Dinner
Thursday 26th November at the Cresta Court Hotel.
Fred Eyre was MC, and he brought his own masterly blend of professionalism and humour to enhance the proceedings. Club Chairman Colm O’Neill gave us a run-down of the year and the fortunes of all the teams.
Next it was Graham Heathcote’s turn to entertain us. He was in superb form relating anecdotes from his long career playing and managing in non-league football. Graham demonstrated a fantastic memory for the names of those he’d played with and against, and frequently called on friends to confirm the facts. We listened in rapt attention, not wishing to miss a thing, particularly the witty asides.
Comedian Mick Miller’s straight faced delivery, stream of great jokes and humorous put-down of anyone careless enough to come to his notice, helped to make it a great night!
