Swardeston held its annual dinner and presentation night at the Social Club.
The evening kicked off as more than 90 guests watched club chairman Mark Taylor receive the third instalment of the three-year sponsorship deal from Barry Martin at Clowes Nash Auctions.
Taylor thanked Clowes Nash for their generosity and support for the club for which they were very grateful.
Taylor paid tribute to the club and remarked that in his 20th year at Swardeston, the spirit which he found at the club in 1999 was very much still in evidence in 2009.
He congratulated all teams for their success, particularly the 1st XI for winning the Bob Carter Cup.
His biggest praise came though for the members of the Swardeston CEYMS Sharks Under-17 team who triumphed in a nerve-wracking Bob Carter Junior Cup final against Horsford Knights.
This was an enthralling match in which he was very proud that the Swardeston CEYMS team held their nerve to reach a four-wicket victory.
Taylor was particularly pleased to see so many of that team and the club’s other youngsters at the dinner.
