Stoke cancel end-of-season awards dinner amid relegation fight

Stoke have cancelled their end of season awards dinner

Stoke have cancelled their end-of-season awards dinner because the club feels it would be inappropriate to have such a celebration in a season which could end in relegation, Sky Sports News understands.

The dinner was scheduled to be held next month at the bet365 Stadium.

Stoke are four points from safety in the bottom three of the Premier League, with three games to play.
