Time: Doors open at 7.30pm

Entry Fee: £3

Live Music: The Last Fakers

After a memorable season, the time has arrived for Shildon’s footballers to be celebrated and rewarded for a third place league finish and for bringing the Durham Challenge Cup back to Dean Street for the first time in 41 years.

The Players’ Presentation Night will take place at Elm Road Club this Friday, 16th May from 7.30pm with awards given out for the Players’ Player of the Year, Directors’ Player of the Year, Club Top Goalscorer and Supporters’ Club Player of the Year.

Live music will be provided by successful and popular local band The Last Fakers, fresh from playing the world famous Cavern in Liverpool the previous evening.

A cover charge of just £3 will include the opportunity to have a photo taken with the team and with the Durham Challenge Cup, won in dramatic fashion on Good Friday with two late Billy Greulich-Smith goals against Spennymoor.

There will be opportunities to win prizes with football cards and a raffle, which will include a top prize of a Shildon shirt signed by all the team and the night will be rounded off with a video disco.

Supporters who sponsored the club’s players this season receive a special invitation to the presentation evening where they will be gifted with the players’ shirts.
