Clubman of the Year
Manager Chris Davis praised all of the players. “Congratulations to all of those nominated” said WIFC’s manager. “We had a great season last time round and these nominations reflect the fact that every player contributed along the way”. With the IFA season already underway and a number of teams now holding both training and pre-season friendlies, Davis was clear on whether WIFC would follow suit. “Training is something we do to get to away games, while the idea of pre-season friendlies for what’s meant to be a friendly league is pretty laughable” said Davis. “Good luck to those who do – each to their own – but WIFC will continue in the vein that’s seen us through the last 16 and a bit years”
