GREAT ATTENDANCE FOR THE CEREMONY AS KAREEM GOUGLOU AND IEVA BIDERMANE PROVE TO BE THE SUCCESSES OF THE EVENING.

Yesterday evening (17/10/2015), Riga United held it's 3rd Annual awards/end of season party at Paddy Whelan's pub.  All the votes were cast by players and fans alike.  

There was a great turnout from the players as the evening proved to be the most successful yet.  The awards were jointly hosted by Richard Youatt and Mo Awada with cameos from Justin Walley and John Whitmore. 

The evening's big successes turned out to be Kareem Gouglou (Riga United FC) and Ieva Bidermane (Riga United Ladies), who both picked up 3 awards each 'Top Goalscorer'. 'Goal of the Season' and 'Players' Player' respectively.  However club favourite, Paul Andrez picked up 'Club Person 2015', to the delight of everyone attending. 

Three of the players who won awards were not able to attend, Niels Krause 'Manager's Player' (Riga United FC), Anton Agebrant 'Supporters' Player' (Riga United FC) and Stefanos Panagidis 'Best Trainee' (Riga United FC).  They did leave video messages thanking everyone for their vote and Stefanos' video, got a particularly rapturous reception after he brought the attendees to tears with his funny acceptance speech.

Men's team coaches Mo Awada and Graham Williams also presented the club a trophy from the Rīgas Futbola Federācija for "The Best Home Match Organisers'.  This story is to be followed up soon.
