On Friday the 1st of July, Wapping Youth FC and friends came together for our end-of-season award ceremony, to celebrate everyone’s achievements and hard work throughout the past year (season).
We all had an amazing time, with soo many parents, players, family, friends, staff members, special guests, and supporters attending our event and celebrating with us.
We'd like to thank Impressions Venue, for supplying an amazing location for our celebration and providing a high standard of service.
The event started with supportive speeches from Wapping FC’s directing manager Nahimul Islam, followed by a motivational speech from the ex-professional player and current football media pundit, Aaron Mclean.
Awards were presented to every player from the Wapping FC’s foundation phase, as a sign of their achievements for completing another quality season. Just seeing how happy and proud each kid was to be up on that stage to collect their much-deserved awards, is what makes all of the club's efforts worth it.
Through the intervals, we had some amazing entertainment throughout the whole evening, with a magician taking the stage and engaging with the attendees and organisers of the event, between the foundation phase and the youth phase. His magic tricks stunned and surprised everyone.
Returning to the awards ceremony, we handed out awards and trophies to the players from the youth phase. The u14s were given extra applause for their double-winning season, where they won both the league and the cup!
The senior phase was another special phase to show off, as both the Men's & Vets' sides won their respected league cups.
We had many more entertainment acts throughout the evening, with a singing performance by Gabriella and Harry bringing everyone joy through their amazing voices. A very talented violinist "jessicabollywoodviolinist" played throughout dinner, engaging all the young people whilst she played modern classics. A very talented young rapper called LMR, got the crowd hyped and brought a lot of our young players on stage for his performance. With "Comedian Victor Daniels" a comedian that brought the jokes and made the whole place laugh.
We all had an incredibly fun evening but more importantly, an incredible and fun year/season Our Wapping family grew even bigger whilst also achieving many amazing things. We are soo happy to be able to have specials nights like our end-of-season celebration night, as it gives us a chance to shine a light on all the amazing aspects of our club, all the hard-working people that make this club so great, whilst also showing off our achievements from the year/season.
Thank you for all being part of our WAPPING FAMILY! 💙
