The Bracknell Bees Supporters Club held their annual End of Season Presentation Evening tonight, Wednesday 22nd March, at Blues Smokehouse, Bracknell. The event was, as always, very well attended and supported. All those in attendance had a great time, great food and a fun filled evening!

The team also awarded their Players Player Award to Carl Thompson for a stellar season.
Lukas Smital went on to award his Coaches Player Award to Bees Captain Matt Foord.
The Supporters Club committee finally also awarded the Supporters Club Unsung Hero award and this year they chose to award it to Scott Spearing.
The Ambassador of the Season Award went to volunteer media manager John Slater for his hard work and dedication in a number of different areas including PR, Social Media, Website, Match Night Programme and Live Stream Commentary to name just a few, all season.
After the awards the party really got started with music, food and drinks and everyone having a great evening!
