Everton End Of Season Awards Dinner 09
ON Monday, 18
May 2009, Everton FC held its 'End Of Season Awards Dinner'
at St George's Hall in Liverpool city centre. The lavish
dinner event was run in association with Mercedes-Benz was amazingly
well attended with lots of high profile local dignitaries, including
many former players from the Club's illustrious past...
black-tie ceremony started outside under an Everton Blue and White
sky with guests arriving at the North Entrance of St George's Hall.
Media from all over the UK lined up as well as some from other
countries. The biggest VIP's had to be the entire Everton first-team
squad will be in attendance along with manager David Moyes, who
received a standing ovation as they entered the hall. Over the night
many awards were issued by the club, with the likes of Marouane
Fellaini picking up the Young Player of the Year Award. One of the
most interesting things was seeing him trying to say thank you in
English, as he is, if you didn't know from Belgian. Most of the
press agreed that we would not like to have to stand up on stage and
give a speech in Belgian, if French (Walloon), Flemish or German was
not our native tongue. Especially when we did not know we were going
to be called up! But he did well and you can see it on the Everton's
website. Despite Phil
Jagielka's injured knee, he was amazingly receptive to the media and
had a long lively and very friendly chat at the end of the night;
after he had scooped both the Supporters and Players' Player awards.
Also it was not just the main Stars who got awards; Everton Female
Disabled Player of the Season was awarded to Chelsea McGlory.
We have added a few
photographs to this week's issue, but lots more in will be added in
next week's issue...
