On Friday evening, the Club held its third End of Season Presentation at the Winnington Rec Club. Around 120 enjoyed a three course meal before sitting back and enjoying the awards and video tributes. The Club was absolutely delighted that, for the very first time, players, officials, family and sponsors of our Under 21’s were present and were able to celebrate an excellent first season.
Before the awards were announced, tributes were paid to Michael Brandon, who had decided to ‘hang up his boots’. A video was shown of some of Mike’s best goals before he was presented with a gift from the club, a canvas of an iconic celebration after one of his many goals.
Michel Brandon – he is and always will always be an 1874 LEGEND.
