THERE were laughs and awards aplenty in the Ryandale, Moy as the Square Wheels held their first memorial dinner dance.

It was a celebratory night with a poignant theme as the club remembered two of its members who sadly departed over the last year or so. Shane McArdle passed away in October 2016 while Simon Acheson departed in July this year.

The family of Shane attended the event and kindly sponsored the Shane McArdle Memorial Shield which was presented to the 2017 Square Wheels Most Promising Newcomer.

Meanwhile, the family of Simon sponsored the Simon Acheson Memorial Shield which was awarded to the 2017 Square Wheels Club Person of the Year.

The night was a roaring success and is sure to become an annual event in the club calendar.

Club awards were presented to the following personnel as voted for by club members:

Most Improved Female Cyclist - Ellie McArdle

Most Improved Male Cyclist - Stephen Maguire

Best Racer of 2017 - Gareth McFarland

Most Promising Newcomer (Shane McArdle Memorial Shield) - Ronan Conroy

Club Person of the Year (Simon Acheson Memorial Shield) - Gareth Dempsey
