Quigley’s Point Swifts FC celebrated their 50th year with the Club Presentation Dinner Dance in the Point Inn last Friday.
Quigley’s Point Swifts FC turned 50 during the first lock-down and their big anniversary was celebrated with a long-anticipated Dinner Dance on the 28th of October, during which senior and junior teams were presented with trophies from their successful year on the pitch.
Members young and old of Quigley’s Point Swifts came together in Friday 28th of October for the long-anticipated Presentation Dinner Dance in the Point Inn after putting it on hold for two years due to the Covid Pandemic.
Everyone was very excited to be there, especially the children who were gathered in the middle of the room and who have become great friends over the years.
After a delicious meal, Chairman Brian Rutherford and Public Relations Officer Sean Gallagher, better known as Golly G, took to the stage to welcome everyone and to thank the many volunteers who keep the club afloat.
The club had a very successful year in terms of performance on the pitch and the players and coaches were thanked for their commitment and determination.
Three Derry City players, Cameron McJannet, Brandon Kavanagh and Ciaran Coll, were invited to the stage to present the trophies to the junior and senior teams.
Special trophies went to Players of the Year, Most improved and Player’s Player of the Year. There were also Cups, Shields and League Cups presented to the winning and runners up teams of the Inishowen Youth & Schoolboys League.
The presentation was followed by dancing and chasing balloons around the dance floor to music provided by Liam Atcheson and Stephanie Pope.
It was evident that sport brings people from all walks of life together and this night allowed everyone to have fun, catch ups among friends and reminiscing the good old days.
The club is always looking for volunteers and new members are very welcome. For further information and contact details, visit the Quigley’s Point Swifts FC Facebook page.
