Brilliant evening celebrating the players awards 2018

2 months ago By Tim Clough

Over 100 players and members packed the clubhouse on a great evening at Rudding Lane.

For the first time the Colts joined the senior squad for the players awards on a night full of laughter and fun.
Tom Larder was awarded the Graham Siswick Trophy, despite needing surgery and missing almost all the season he never missed a training session and on Saturdays was always helping out the teams playing, Saxons, Georgians or First XV.

The Colts review was conducted by Sam Fox all recipients cheered and supported by the senior players including Connor Miller - skipper and player of the year.

Matt Lansdall was awarded the trophy for trainer of the year presented by Kevin Shattock.

Richard Beck presented Fraser Kitchen with the Most Improved Player award.

Steve Maycock was presented with supporters player of the year by David Smith.

Andy Boyde almost won an award for going a season without a yellow card but fell at the last hurdle with 40 mins of the sesason left to play !

The players player of the year was won by Oli Rosillo after a stellar season.

Georgians player of the year was George Hampson chosen by the coaching and management team and awarded by Rob Johnson.

This year has seen a number of the Colts progressing into the adult game with great success with Connor Miller captaining the Colts this season and also representing the Saxons, Georgians and First XV where he scored a debut try and set up two others. In total over 15 players progressed from the Georgians into the First XV during the year.

The first XV narrowly missed out on the promotion play off finishing 3rd in National League 3, Georgians runners up in both Yorkshire Merit League Tables and the RFU North Merit League, Colts had a great season with just 2 league defeats, Ladies won their league and just missed out on promotion in the play offs.

Thanks to all the members, supporters, parents, sponsors & volunteers for making match days so successful.
Also a huge thank you to our major sponsors Stratstone & Slingsby's for their support on the evening.

See you in pre season.
