I would just like to pass on my thanks to you for organising John Motson as our guest speaker. Please pass onto John our thanks for not only a great presentation but a fine job as our auctioneer. Everyone had a great evening and it was my personal pleasure to play host to John. He is not only a legend in broadcasting but a real gentleman.

John was both friendly and personable and he did a great job presenting the awards and delivering his career anecdotes. What a professional he is, they really don’t make them like that anymore and we couldn’t have wished for more on the day, he made the event special.
