The GER Stadium was the venue for the March Town Ladies end of season presentation on Sunday.

The Hares celebrated their S Tech North League title and were presented with the shield.

They only lost two league games all season.

Each player received a trophy and there were specific achievement trophies, all sponsored by Once Upon A Cake.

Most improved player was Kayleigh Churchyard; top goal scorer was Emma Frost; most player of the match votes was Jade Pointer; sponsors’ player was Tori Sharpe; players’ player was Claire Newton; captains’ player was Shannon Kelly; and manager’s player was Sydney Davis.

Manager Gary Davis said: “It was great to also thank those people behind the scenes, whose help is essential to ensure that the team runs smoothly.

“I’m very proud of the team’s achievements over the last four seasons and it’s great to have the challenge of the Premiership next season.

“This season is also the last one for skipper Jade Pointer – who is retiring from playing.

“She has been a great character and player for the club and will be sorely missed on the pitch.”

Jade was presented with gifts from her team mates and supporters, and all hope she continues to be involved with the team.

The Hares are continuing to train during the summer and anyone interested in joining can contact Gary on 07824 337771.
