Bryan opened the speaking reflecting on that grey day, August 8 last year, when his Norwich City team lost 7 - 1 to Colchester which resulted in him losing the manager's job.
He then commented that how come Swaffham lost 7-0 to Whitton some weeks later and 'Simmo and Kenty' kept their jobs!
This set the mood, level and style for the evening.
As well as the meal, an auction and raffle were held, proceeds being shared by the Pedlars and the Leukaemia Research charity.
Club secretary Ray Ewart said after the event: 'Special thanks to our sponsors - including locally The George Hotel, Narford Scaffolding, Platinum Cars, Premier Foods, Ben Burgess Garden Equipment and Billy Exley - for supporting the event and making it a success.
'Also, special thanks to Swaffham Conservative Club for the use of their facilities.'
