The Three Kings
7 Clerkenwell Close
The highlight of the football calendar is upon us once again, for the 6th year in a row. As usual it will be an evening of gentle banter, glittering prizes and a surprise celebrity host.
As has become tradition, awards will be handed out in the following "official" categories:
1. Player of the Year: previous winners are Jim (2009), Edd (2010), Lee (2011), Jack (2012) and James E (2013)
2. Goal of the Season: previous winners are Tom A (2009), Dan S (2010), John M (2011 and 2012) and Jack (2013)
3. Best Newcomer: previous winners are James A (2010), Joe C (2011), Manchester Matt (2012) and Dave (2013)
4. Unsung Hero: previous winners are Jack (2011), Mark (2012) and Loz (2013)
5. Moaniest Bastard: previous winners are Dan O (2009, 2010 and 2012), Adam (2011) and Dan S
6. Golden Boot: previous winners are Bamos (2009), Dan O (2010, 2011 and 2013), Tunde (2011 and 2012) and Owen (2013)
In addition, there will be an unlimited number of the usual "moody" awards, categories to be suggested at your peril, either in this thread, or in a PM if you want to keep it a surprise.
The voting forms will be sent out later today via email (if I have your details), or via PM (if I don't) or via text (if you're not on DiS at all). Feel free to contact me if you believe you are eligible to vote and you haven't received a voting form. The polls will close on Wednesday 10th December at midnight.
A full overview of the season with all relevant threads will be posted later today.
The nominees for best newcomer will be revealed in a little while as well.
Note that the upstairs room at the Three Kings has been booked out for us from 7:30 PM onwards. It's the room when you come up the stairs on the right, with the jukebox in it. Feel free to claim it if you are early. The pub does do very decent, very affordable food too for those who come straight from work and don't like their usual dinner of ready-salted crisps. The first award will be presented at 8:15 PM sharp.
The evening is open for all DiSers to attend, regardless if you have played/watched a game or not. See you there.
