THE Auchinleck Talbot FC Fundraising Club held a successful Annual Members’ Meeting, Hospitality Day and Player of the Year.

Club representatives reported an excellent closing balance to a well-attended meeting.

Members past and present were thanked for their support, as was Andy Devlin of AMD Catering for providing the buffet.

In what was a glorious season which saw a treble being secured in the form of the Scottish Junior Cup, McBookie Premiership and Sectional Cup, it was very difficult to pick out a player of the year as there have been so many good, consistent performers.

There could only be one winner, however and it was former Ayr United defender Gordon Pope.

He played brilliantly throughout the campaign and scored a double in the win at Troon which helped seal the title.

He received his prize from Barbara Millar, wife of the club’s treasurer, Bobby.
