On Sunday January 25th, Enderby Junior Dodgeballers celebrated their first anniversary by holding an Enderby Junior Dodgeball Awards party.

A good number of awards were made for commitment, most improved player and winners of individual competitions (some snapshots, posted on the Junior Dodgeball Facebook Page are reproduced below).
The ceremony took place prior to a party in Studio 2 of the Enderby Leisure Centre and before presenting the awards, coach Liam O’Sheehan said the players had really taken the sport to heart and shown great commitment. He said the standard achieved in the first year had been exceptionally high.
Awards were in the shape of small engraved trophies and medallions and a message on the Junior Club’s Facebook page says …. “A big thankyou to ‘ezee-trophies.co.uk‘ who saved the day when the [original] supplier let us down with just 48hrs notice.”
