Our Annual Club Dinner and Presentation of Awards was held on Friday, 22nd. November and was well-supported with around fifty guests in attendance. This year we were joined by Andy Kennedy, Chairman of Ballymena Cricket Club and a well-known local wit and raconteur. Andy kept his audience in stitches with a hugely entertaining after-dinner speech riddled with some sharp observations and local humour which had a good proportion of the crowd in tears of laughter. Joining Andy and his wife as guests of the Club, we were delighted to welcome the Mayor and Mayoress, Eric Ferguson and his wife, Rosalinda, and their guest Ms. Lynda Hunter. As well as honouring the prize winners for the season, the Club was delighted to receive the Derby Scorpions shirt worn by Ryan Eagleson in his debut match against Durham from Ryan's mother and father, Eleanor and Trevor.
