Club captain Melvin Trayhurn hosted the event as his final act in terms of his year in office and he now hands things over the Chris Hawke, who will captain the club in the 2020 season.

Also retiring this year after serving the club for many years as treasurer was Bob Porton, who will be succeeded by David Roberts.

Presenting the awards was the club's retiring president Maggie Beighton. Maggie will be passing the presidency onto David Rose, who has served the club for many years in a variety of roles.

It was good to see some new names on the trophies this year. Mention must go to one of our younger members Ryan Seers, who, at the age of 22, received the Otter Trophy while, in only his second season, Mike Cozens won the Fred Burgess Cup.
