Twenty two Junior Cards and their families enjoyed a action packed and fun filled afternoon in the Cardinals Bar on Sunday. The event was arranged by Adam Bowyer who was unfortunately unable to attend. However, Master of Ceremonies Gareth Griffiths was well supported by his wife Helen, daughter Rebecca, Sue Conner and John Hooker from the Cards Trust.
Excellent and plentiful food was provided by Catering manager Simon Jones assisted by Paula from behind the Bar!
The kids didn’t need a Father Christmas (although there was an inflatable one) when the three Wise Men appeared in the guise of Manager Dowse, Assistant Manager Ian Dyer and Club Captain Josh Casey. Not to be out done, Chairman Rosemary Johnson and CEO John Katz appeared and quickly got into the party spirit including allowing the children (whose ages ranged from three to thirteen) to turn them into Snowmen; Rosemary on the right, John Katz on his knees, Alan Dowson with the red hat and a roped in dad on the far left.
The adorable 3 year old Lara Hunt was declared the winner of the ‘best Christmas Sweater’ by John Katz and Dowse and receives a Club Shirt as a prize donated by the Club Shop.
Feedback from the kids, mums and dads and grandparents was
“Thank you Woking Football Club and can we do it again next year please?”
