Following the presentation of the awards, those in attendance will be able to enjoy after-dinner entertainment from Jersey FA’s headline speaker on the night, Jim Leishman, who has become recognised as one of Scotland’s top after-dinner speakers.
Currently Dunfermline’s Director of Football, Jim has enjoyed an eventful career in the professional game, having been a successful manager with clubs including Dunfermline, Inverness Caledonian Thistle and, most recently, Livingston. In addition, Jim has the proud honour of featuring in a Scottish Cup Final at Hampden Park as both a player and a manager.
David Kennedy, Chief Executive Officer at Jersey FA, said: “After the disappointment of being unable to complete the 2019/20 season, we want to ensure that this will be a special evening for everyone, as there is so much to celebrate.
“We intend to make it a night to remember and having Jim as the headline speaker will guarantee that.
“He is one of the biggest personalities in the Scottish game and is renowned for his hilarious anecdotes from his playing and managerial career.”
