It was late, it was chilly but there was plenty to warm the cockles as the awards for the junior section were handed out on Sunday.
Junior chairman Russell Haggar said it felt like it had been a year of transition for the youngsters but there were still some notable successes, with both the under-17s and the girls under-15s being crowned county champions.
