Mellor FC End of Season Awards Ceremony & Reunion

The club broke with tradition and held the annual awards ceremony straight after the final game of the season. Around 60 players attended at the Marple Tavern. The event coincided with a reunion of ex Mellor players, mainly from the Eighties.

There was also an exhibition of Mellor FC memorabila from the past 88 years.

The April draw for the Mellor 100 Club was made. The winners were: First prize of £80 CJS Roofing. Second Prize of £40: Jono Hunt.

Thanks to all players and officials who have worked hard to make this season a success.

The Firsts and Thirds finished third in their respective divisions. The Seconds came fourth. The Thirds also won the Whitehead Cup. The Fourths narrowly missed out on a Cup semi-final.

The event began with a SKYPE link up with Second Team leading goalscorer Ryan Yates who is in Canada.

The managers then gave a brief review of the season and presented their trophies.

The full list of winners is shown below.

Eleven ex players attended the reunion. They included, from the famous 'double double' era, Phil Jarvis, John Martin, John Spollin, Neil Hursthouse, Mark Peebles, Mark Rahman, Steve Hannan and Nigel Redfern. Dick Bell was due to attend but his car broke down coming from Shropshire. Stu Lindsay was attending his son's stag do. It was planned to hold a similar event next year.
