The teams played friendly games against other teams in their age group and then received trophies for their efforts through the season.
Special Guests through the day were ex Wolves Players Dom Telford of Stoke City and Leighton Clarkson from Liverpool FC. Both lads gave up their time to present medals to most age groups from the Under 5s up. President and Founder George Hibbert and Mayor of the Ribble Valley Joyce Holgate also joined the Wolves players to present the Awards.
Various different stalls provided the entertainment through the day, Paint Pot a Human Fruit machine, Face Painting amongst other things. Food was provided by Low Moor Club and the Asian Food stall plus cakes from Aneta Brunning. Generous Local business and supporters provided some wonderful Raffle and Tombola prizes, which also helped the day a success.

The club would like to thank the list of sponsors attached for their continued support as to kit the teams out isn’t possible without these contributions. The club would like to give a special thanks to Vicky Hibbert who has contributed almost £1,000 to the Disability group through the last 18 months to enable us to keep this up and running. #morethanaclub
