Honours for rugby stars

Cam­bus­lang are de­lighted as ju­nior sec­tion rises once again

Rutherglen Reformer - - Motors - Kenny Smith

There was a large turnout at Cam­bus­lang Rugby Club last week as the club handed out its ju­nior prizes.

The 2014/15 sea­son has seen a real turn­around in the for­tunes of the club’s ju­nior sec­tion, as it has been rein­vig­o­rated by a team of new vol­un­teers who have taken on the job with en­thu­si­asm.

There has been such a big turn­around in the space of 12 months, when last May the club had no real ju­nior sec­tion to speak of, and no awards were pre­sented.

To make up for it, two years worth of prizes were handed out at the club­house. The prizes were given to: Dou­glas Niven - Most Im­proved Player of the Sea­son 2014/15.

Jamie Ram­say - Most Im­proved Player of the Sea­son 2013/14.

Blair Suther­land - Diva Sea­son.

Oliver Dalby - Play­ers Player of the Sea­son 2013/14.

Gregg Oehme - Coaches Player of the Sea­son 2013/14.

Kieran Grainger - Play­ers Player of the Sea­son 2014/15.

Reece Al­li­son - Coaches Player of the Sea­son 2014/15.
