The players from Brentford Women's FC were joined by family, friends, officials and a special guest at Bedfont Sports Club for the annual presentation night last month. There was a great turnout with about 70 people, plenty of cheering, clapping and photos as the players first collected their 2018-/019 season medals and then the special awards.
Both First and Development teams were well represented, with a total of 20 different players receiving their trophies from Brentford B Assistant Head Coach Allan Steele. Special mentions go to:
Rebekah Wiltshire - First Team Manager’s and Player’s Player of the Year and Top Goal Scorer
Sophie Lee - First Team Captain’s Player of the Year
Stephanie Blake - Development Team Manager’s Player of the Year
Sarah O’Connor - Development Team Captain’s Player of the Year
Charlotte Tanner and Sarah O’Connor who were joint Development Team Player’s Player of the Year
Shannon Read - Development Team Top Goal scorer
Three goalkeepers - Emily Boycott, Niamh O’Grady, and Mia Heljeberg - were each recipients of the Chairman’s Award
Roger Crook, BWFC Chairman, then presented special awards to Charlotte Tanner, who is moving from player to coach, and Sophie Lee, who is leaving after many years of service. The final presentations were then made to the coaches and others that have given up their time over the last season. The final part of the formal proceedings was a brief speech by guest of honour Allan Steele, who gave thanks to the players for their commitment, and voiced his desire to help and support the Women’s teams.
Roger thanked all, re-stating the positive things to come next season, then the DJ took his cue and turned up the music.
A full programme of friendlies and tournaments will keep everyone busy and involved over the summer.
