Seniors Dinner and Prize giving - Nov19. Our Captain Alan Cropp hosted the Seniors Annual Dinner on 8th Nov. The evening was a 50's / 60's themed night with our Captain reliving some of his 'younger' days!!. In addition to a disco we had the pleasure of an 8 piece band and an excellent 3 course meal,

Alan, supported by Club vice-Captain, Chris Lester, awarded the prizes to this year’s Competition winners - see slideshow below.

The main award of the evening: ‘ Player of the Year’ went to Malc Houghton. The winner is selected by the captain and Alan stated: “Malc embodies Hinckley Seniors. He is someone who is always up for a bit of ‘Banter’ but also remains competitive. A positive, optimistic member that gives us all a laugh when at the club.”
