After a wonderful year on and off the pitch, Armagh City’s annual awards night took place at the Armagh City Hotel last night as players, sponsors, volunteers and sponsors – representing senior, youth and ladies teams – celebrated both the collective and individual achievements within the club. Eamon Kelly scooped both the Player of the Year and Players’ Player of the Year awards after a super first full season, a popular choice among fans and colleagues.
Chairman Philip Johnston took time on the night to pay tribute to the masses of people who had helped bring the club to where it stands today, at the end of the most successful season in the club’s history. While the senior squad’s victories have been well documented, the night also allowed the U18s and U15s to step into the limelight, as the club’s foundations were again represented with the promising youth players waiting in the wings.
