As it happened at the Alban Arena.
At what has become one of the biggest Annual events held at the Alban Arena if was Presentation Day 2017 for St Albans City Youth Community FC and once again, due to the number of teams there were three sessions with the first kicking off just after lunch and the last finishing around 9 pm.
The Club's Patron Annie Brewster took to the stage along with the Mayor of St. Albans Iqbal Zia plus City Youth Trustees and Officials Lesley Wray, Gill Savory, Ian Woods, Mervyn Morgan, Geoff Watts, Terry Edwards and Chris Pearce.
Before each Session, the clubs Chair of Trustees Mervyn Morgan said a few words about fellow Trustee and his close friend David Wray who sadly passed away last year. Mervyn highlight to huge contribution David made to the District and Hertfordshire as a whole for all the work he did for the club and others. This resulted in a five-minute standing ovation in honour of Davids work.
In the first session, Mervyn Morgan introduced the Teams whilst the Mayor of St. Albans Iqbal ZIa presented the Player of the Year Trophies with Geoff Watts and Terry Edwards presenting the Club Pennants to each player. Patron Annie Brewster also presented teams with their League and Cup medals.
In the second session, Geoff Watts introduced the Teams whilst Gill Savory (Club Trustee) presented the Player of the Year Trophies whilst Lesley Wray and Terry Edwards presented the Club Pennants to the each player with Mervyn Morgan presenting other medals and trophies.
In the final session it was the turn of the Clubs Secretary Ian Woods to introduce the Teams with the Club's Chairman Geoff Watts made the Player of the Year Awards whilst Terry Edwards (all on his own) presented the Club Pennants to each player with Mervyn Morgan helping Geoff Watts presenting any of the other awards.
