This is a great achievement and a reflection of all the hard work done by the Chairman, captains, players and the club fixture secretary.

The club was judged on the following criteria:

  • Fair play
  • Discipline
  • Attitude towards officials and other players
  • Hospitality both home and away
  • The club house and facilities
  • The pitches
  • The club as a whole and match day management
  • The efficiency and professionalism of fixture management including prompt responses to the league and other clubs and submission of accurate team sheets.
  • The respect and hospitality shown by captains to officials and opposition teams

This is an award to the club and all its members and to win by 1 vote beating Old Parkonians is an excellent achievement in the OLFC's first season at its new home of the Lyonian Pavilion on the John Lyon School playing fields.

The ambition now is to retain this award for the 2016/2017 season.

Congratulations to all involved in winning this award.
