Talbot v Pollok 4th May 2024 – Match Sponsors & Awards

Talbot Thanks

Many thanks to everyone who sponsored our final home match as we signed off for the season at Beechwood with a thrilling 6-3 victory against Pollok. Both sides deserve enormous credit for giving us such a high quality match watched by a large and appreciative crowd.

The John & Margo Kiltie sponsor’s lounge was yet again packed out with no fewer than eleven groups presenting Man of the Match awards. That itself speaks volumes about the club and it’s loyal following.

Prior to the presentations being made, our Commercial Manager Colin Chisholm thanked and praised the many groups who work in and around the ground on match days.

He praised the efforts of the players, and the management and coaching team of Tucker, Alan, Whitey and Brian for their efforts throughout a season which has finished on a high optimistic note following the upheaval and changes in personnel we experienced prior to the season starting. Amazing progress has been made with this young and exciting group of players.

Colin also thanked our Clubs Hosts, Ross Findlay, Willie Young, Derek McDicken, Andy Davidson and last but not least, Kenny Paterson who co-ordinates the match host operation.

Finally, Colin thanked all our supporters for their amazing backing throughout the season and he paid a special thanks to everyone both within the sponsors lounge and the social club itself who purchase after match raffle tickets and to Alex Gemmell & Geordie Palmer who sell the tickets. The raffle this year has generated funding to assist with ground maintenance.

We will produce a special feature on the web page in the next week or so to highlight and thank the many people who work for the club during our match day operations.

Thanks to Craig McGhee for sponsor’s lounge photographs and to Madison Taylor for additional cover photo.
