HOLT United FC had a busy last Saturday of the season, when their match against Fakenham Reserves was followed by their presentation dinner.
The match at Fakenham was a typical end-of-season affair. Against a team who, before the match, were on minus two points, Holt made the worst possible start by conceding a penalty in the first minute, which was fired past Justyn Goff.
The Owls soon equalised when Colm McGilway calmly slotted the ball home from eight yards. From then until the half-time whistle, Holt laid siege to the Fakenham goal but woeful shooting meant the teams went into the break level.
Holt at last hit the front with 53 minutes gone when skipper Kevin Moore shot into the back of the net.
Again the Owls were guilty of some sloppy finishing. It took a stonking free-kick from Matthew Sanders to finish the home team. Despite a poor end to the season, the players can be proud of their efforts which saw them finish in third place.
The club's presentation evening was held at the Pinewood Leisure Centre. In front of over 100 people the awards were made: First Team Player of the Year, Justyn Goff; Players' Player, James Medlar; Supporters' Player of the Year, James Medlar; Reserve Team Player of the Year, Chris Hopper; Players' Player, Gavin Sheridan; A Team Player of the Year, Dean Elliott; Players' Player, Luke Williamson; Clubman of the Year, First team manager Jim Blandford; Young Player of the Year, Toby Blowers; Top Scorer Award, Kevin Moore.
