NEWS: Falcons celebrate most successful season

Friday night sees the Edinburgh Falcons draw the curtain on their most successful season since formation back in 1996.

The Falcons annual presentation night is always eagerly awaited and the night has sold out in record quick time. Riders, family and supporters will arrive at Willowbrae Bowling Club ready to enjoy a full night of presentations, a famous stovies buffet and karaoke into the small hours.

The capital side finished third in the First Division, won the Second Division after a play off and were also third in the under 13 division. To top this off Kieran Swanson won the British under 13 title back in July, all these achievements assure a glut of silverware on show for the event which kicks off at 7:30pm.

Available on the night will be an excellent triple disc highlights DVD produced to mark the season by Alan Hewitson as well as a Falcons first with staunch club supporter Jimmy McIntyre detailing all matches and stats in a Club Handbook which at first glance looks superb.

The only question mark will be the coveted rider of the year trophies which were won by Mikey Hewitson (Senior), Ewan Kennedy (Young) and Neil Swanson (Managers) in 2013.
