Awards aplenty as Jones dishes out trophies
THE stars of the season were honoured when Whitland Junior Borderers held their end-of-season awards ceremony.
First-team hooker Marc Jones was on hand to dish out the trophies.
The under-14s player of the year award went to Monty Milton, with Iestyn Comey picking up the players’ player trophy and Joe Bohane winning the most improved award.
The under-11s player of the year was Marley Grimshaw. Glyn Bevan was players’ player and Brogan Cunningham took the most improved silverware.
A trophy is also awarded in this age group in memory of former club stalwart Dave Pilot for the best club player or team-mate who most upholds the values of the game. This award went the way of Ellen Morris for her dedication to training and all-round contributions to the squad.
In the under-9s age group, Harvey Nash picked up the player of the year title. Blake Barnes-Scrivin was voted players’ player and Joe Gascoigne took the honours for most improved.
The Borderers also have thriving numbers at under-7 and under-8 level. All the children in these sides received trophies from Jones as just reward for their efforts.
“It’s been a wonderful year in rugby at Whitland Junior Borderers with smiles on the faces of all the children in each age group,” said Junior Borderers chairperson Sarah Morris.
