Resolven AFC Presentation Night

End of season awards were presented to the football players at an enjoyable presentation dinner held recently in Resolven AFC. Special guests in attendance were County Borough Councillor Des Davies and Resolven Community Councillor Aylwin Jones who presented the following awards:

Players’ player of the year Team A- Carl Day, Team B- Christian Arthurs

Manager’s Player of the year Team A- Carl Day, Team B- Christian Arthurs

Young player of the year  Jordan Berry

Clubman of the Year  Allister Wheeler

Top goal scorer  Christian Arthurs

Alan Wellstead Memorial Trophy  Grant Morgan

A special award was presented to Carl Day to mark his retirement as a player. Carl has played football for over 28 years with the majority spent at this club. The many tributes from past and present players showed the appreciation and admiration everyone has for Carl on and off the pitch.  He was described as a passionate player & clubman that many teams and particularly defence feared. Carl made an emotional speech thanking everyone past and present and he made a special mention to older mentors who inspired him, he also passed encouraging words to younger players to work hard, support each other and above all enjoy playing for their club, winning or losing.

The evening was a great success, well done to all who won awards. A special thanks to Allister  Wheeler and Grant Morgan for doing a sterling job at presenting for the first time.”
