Hertford CCs Annual Dinner at the clubhouse has proved to be a great success in recent years and 2017 was no different.
Members and players (old & new) enjoyed the evening's entertainment which featured a 3-course meal followed by awards, captains' speeches, prize draws and a raffle.
Esteemed guest Michael Owen, ex-Wales and British & Irish Lions rugby football captain, kindly took a Q&A session and presented awards to players. It was fascinating to gain an insight into the career of a player who succeeded at the very highest level. A massive thanks goes out to Michael for attending the event.
