Bonagee United senior player Michael Funston – who made 335 appearances for Finn Harps after coming through Bonagee’s underage ranks – was the special guest.
Alice Diver, recently named North West Women’s Super League Player of the Year, was awarded the senior player of the year prize. Diver was to the fore as Bonagee captured a first ever North West Women’s Super League title in 2019.
Experienced defender Maureen O’Donnell was named Players Player of the Year after a stellar year at the back in the gold and green.
The ever-dependable Siobhan Sweeney was named as Young Player of the Year and Natalie McFadden, the senior captain who has been at Bonagee since the start of the club’s ladies teams, took the top goalscorer award.
It was a season when the underage ranks went from strength to strength again and the crowd in attendance bore out the success of the club at the moment.
Long-standing club member Donal Coyle acted as MC for the night.
