WOODEN SPOON SURREY SPORTSMAN’S DINNER 18TH MAY 2017
WOODEN Spoon Surrey’s 25th annual Sportsman’s Dinner, saw a great attendance of 130 Wooden Spoon members and guests, who all enjoyed the splendid surroundings of The Royal Automobile Club near Epsom.
Special Guest of Honour, Shaun Edwards OBE, gave a speech covering his career in both Rugby League and Union providing a really interesting insight into the world of coaching rugby players at Premiership and at International level. This was followed by a highly entertaining Q & A with Wooden Spoon Surrey Hon. President, John Inverdale, with questions from the floor as diverse as, ‘what are your thoughts on the British & Irish Lions squad selection’ and ‘what makes the most famous of Rugby League’s Man of Steel Award recipients shed a tear’!
Amongst the top table guests was David McGuigan from Wooden Spoon Surrey Partner Club, Old Reigatians RFC, who presented a cheque for the magnificent sum of £7,877 as the club’s donation for the season 2016/17.
Thank you to everyone who attended and made the evening one to truly remember and celebrate!
