2011 Life Members
In addition, the club paid tribute to the non-playing contributions of Shaun Hill and Tim Davidson to the Blue Sox cause over the past five years. They were duly awarded Life Membership of the club and we hope they continue to serve us in their ‘unsung hero’ roles in the future.
2011 Hall of Fame Induction
The night concluded with the induction of our first ever members into the Leicester Blue Sox hall of fame. Denny Walker and Mark Meredith have recently announced their retirement from league action and their playing contribution over the past five seasons were celebrated in fine fashion.
A new Hall of Fame section has been especially created on our website, featuring player bios and career stats.
A full photo album of the evening can also be found here.
Finally the club would like to thank Damian Holland for once again capturing the night on film.
