The always-excellent annual Awards Night will be taking place at the Hood on Saturday 1st June. It’s a 4:30 for 5pm start, with the awards aspect comprising the first couple of hours, followed by the Liverpool vs Tottenham in the Champions League final (8pm KO). After last night’s magic, and with flights to Madrid already prohibitive, there’s no better place to watch it than at your beloved Hood. For those who want food (fish or sausage), it’s a tenner incl free drink. Let us know what you would like to via Facebook. Should be another brilliant Merton night. All Merton players, friends and supporters welcome!
