Outgoing club secretary Jason McVeigh said it was an honour and privilege to have so many people present who helped shape the club over the years and to hear stories and see photographs of days gone by.

Finishing off their club year, Artana YFC held it’s annual parents night at which they handed out their member of the year and competition trophies as well as presenting a cheque for £5,000 to the Kevin Bell Repatriation Trust.

The club would like to congratulate all their award winners and say thank you to everyone who helped make the anniversary dinner and the club year such a success.
