Awards: As They Happened
Who will win the coveted Player of the Season prize?
9.07pm: As soon as the knives and forks return to the tables we'll be underway with the main awards. A list of honourable guests has been read out, including winners of Everton's previous FA Cup winning teams, former managers and the Everton Ladies who came so close to winning the title last weekend.
9.04pm: "Every time I watch our beloved Everton they play with passion. It makes me so proud. The team is fantastic and David Moyes a hero." Adi, Burton on Trent
9.00pm: "We are the epitome of the word 'team'. The players, fans, board and staff truly make us The People's Club. Upward and onward towards glory by winning the Cup. From there a top four finish next season with another cup to boot." Paul Muldoon
8.51pm: Apologies Ladies and Gents, there's a small break in play while dinner is served. Fantastic spring rolls.
8.42pm: Bill Kenwright: "There will never be another football club like Everton." Is it just the hairs on my neck?
8.35pm: Mr Kenwright finishes his speech to another rousing round of applause. Every single first-team player got a mention and it's fair to say the chairman is overwhelmed at what has been achieved this season. He saved a blushing Phil Jagielka until last and the mere mention of his name raised everyone in St George's Hall to their feet.

8.23pm: "My father was a seven-days-a-week manager," says Joyce, Harry Catterick's daughter. Sums up the dedication that helped him lead the Club to two league titles and an FA Cup.
8.22pm: ...Harry Catterick. Joyce, the daughter of the late legendary manager, comes up to receive the award on behalf of her father. He's the man who led Everton to the 1966 FA Cup. I wonder if David Moyes will be able to say he's matched that achievement a fortnight from now?
