BBC award for Stags

CHE­SHAM RFC

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SPORT -

TWO fe­male coaches from Che­sham Stags RFC were hon­oured at Sun­day’s BBC Sports Per­son­al­ity of the Year awards in Glas­gow.

The Eng­land Women’s Rugby Team were crowned Team of the Year and among the play­ers tak­ing to the stage to ac­cept their award were Che­sham’s very own Rocky Clark and Kat Mer­chant.

Che­sham Stags club pres­i­dent Cliff Davies said: “My mem­o­ries of watch­ing the Team of the Year awards on Sport Per­son­al­ity of the Year go back as far as 1966, when the Eng­land foot­ball team were the win­ners, and I never thought I’d see two peo­ple I know go onto the stage to col­lect theirs.

“I’ve only known Rocky and Kat for a few years, but in that short time I’ve seen the amount of hard work and ded­i­ca­tion re­quired to play sport at the high­est level.

“I would like to say to them on be­half of Che­sham Rugby Club how proud we all are of them both and what they have achieved. They are an in­spi­ra­tion to us, and I per­son­ally can­not thank them enough for all they’ve done for our club, and hope­fully will con­tinue to do so for many years to come.”

There was less to shout about for Che­sham the pre­vi­ous day, how­ever, as they went down 54-12 at home to Berks, Bucks & Oxon Premier lead­ers Read­ing Abbey.
