Spot on dw, it was a truly great moment when Simon announced the news, one of those 'goose bump' moments for sure. I thought the way he made the announcement was excellent.

The evening itself was a really strong indictment of the board and first team management's vision for an all-encompassing club. A very strong youth team presence alongside the first team and deserved awards for all concerned - and it wasn't without emotion with not only the news of SJP, but also Gary's speech toasting absent friends.

I thought, in particular, the management team's choice of Alex Barrett as clubman of the year was a really lovely touch, given the tough time he has been through in the last six weeks or so and the time and money he must have gotten through over the last couple of years taking his Mum home and away - even to the most godforsaken and inaccessible places - all in the pursuit of supporting the team.

The whole thing, seeing SJP in its finished state (completely unrecognisable from this time last year) has left me chomping at the bit to get next season under way now.

Well done to everyone who has played a part, however small, in keeping HFC alive over the last seven and a half years and getting us to this point.
