On Saturday the first award of the Reggie Blair trophy for supporter of the year was made. The management committee of the club short listed 5 worthy candidates for the coveted trophy.

Sam Hillis, Billy Gallagher, Billy Jameson, Jackson Tinto and Shirley Simpson were all in the running to receive the award. Here are the comments that were attributed to each by the management committee.

Billy Jameson – Home and away Billy has been there. Offering help on fund raising and even entertaining the national coach when required. Billys enthusiasim would make him a wonderful addition to the committee for next year

Jackson Tinto – particularly in the run up to the Senior Cup Final Jackson embarked on a mission to paint the fence in spite of the knowledge he would be on holiday thus missing the game itself.

Billy Gallagher – restricted mobility makes it impossible for this man to make away games but has been an ever present at the park for home games. Always keen to find out the results of all teams in the club, a meeting in the Town with Billy inevitably means 20 minutes talk about LCC whatever time of the year.

Sam Hillis – again a man on a one man mission to paint the town green, managing in the process to make a lasting “impression” on the Sunday Life. Typical of the man he gives his time without any fuss.

Shirley Simpson – in a year when we hoped for silverware, this lady and her army of helpers have ensured that Lisburn Cricket Club remain at the very top of the hospitality and catering league. This was never more evident than the Presidents Game in June and the Challenge Cup final in July. A hard and thankless task always taken on with minimum of fuss and professionalism which is remarked on by all visiting teams.

A tight vote ensued and in the end Billy Jameson came out on top and he received his award from Florence Blair and the club captain Greg Thompson after the match against Ballymena on Saturday. Congratulations to Billy, a worthy winner, seen pictured with Florence and Greg above.
