The Widnes Wild held their End of Season Awards Dinner at Parklands, Widnes on Saturday evening. Players, wives, family and fans were invited to spend one final night together to remember what has been a fabulous season.
The evening began with a delightful three course meal before the presentation and thanks to all involved with the club.
In between the meal, the very first play of the Widnes Wild at Mac House video was played. Fans and players alike were given the premiere viewing of the twenty minutes video which catches an insight into what the Wild players have given back to the community throughout the season. This was met with applause from everyone in the room.
Each player and staff member received a glass plaque to recognise their efforts for the season. The individual player awards were then handed out by volunteers, the club showing their gratitude to the people that help on a weekly basis.
Best Forward : Geoff Wigglesworth
Best Defenceman : Kieran Strangeway

Player Coach Scott McKenzie was delighted with the way the evening went;
”This has been a really positive season for the Widnes Wild and tonight showed how many people care about the club. Everything ran extremely smoothly, the staff at Parklands were outstanding and friendly which really helped provide a perfect night for everyone.”
”Although there were individual awards, the team as a whole have been great. The players have really improved and I think took the game a lot more seriously this year than they probably have ever before. There are some building blocks in place and we really want to achieve more as a club and believe that this is just the beginning. I am very proud of everyone’s efforts this year, players, coaches, staff, fans and family, they have given a lot of time, effort, commitment from all of these people to make the Widnes Wild successful. I thank everyone for their time and hard work.”
