Great Yarmouth–Broadland Rugby held its annual May Ball and awards night at the Hotel Imperial on Saturday.
George Wilson received the first team Players’ Player of the Year award.
The prop forward was ever present in the team during the season and was the key member of the pack.
First team captain Shaun Howley presented the First Team Captain’s award to loosehead prop Matt Beckett who had another strong season in the team, scoring six tries.
The second team Players’ Player of the Year trophy was awarded to Callum Courtney. Playing in his first year of rugby, he proved his versatility by switching between backs and forwards during the season and his strong tackling and running were a great asset to the team.
Courtney was also awarded the Coaches’ Players of the Year trophy by head coach Simon Ruddick.
Captain Jimmy Dwyer handed over the Second Team Captain’s Player of the Year award to Josh Evans. Evans had great first season, playing mostly at second row, with the occasional appearance in the backs. He was also selected as the club’s Young Player of the Year.
