After two League Fixtures the ‘boys’ have done good! 2 convincing wins
This is how they did it:
Pinner RFC Under 13s ended their successful season as Division Champions with a certain panache at the End of Season Awards on Friday 7th June at the Shaftesbury Club House.
For something a little different and in keeping with the seniors’ tradition, Head Coach Steve George set all the players a challenge. The players had been given a budget of £5.00 to purchase an outfit from local charity shops, strange how many dresses could be bought for that amount!
The evening was a relaxed affair, the players spending the early part of it outside honing their rugby skills; seeing players tackling each other by grabbing nightdresses and flowing skirts was a little different!
There was great support from the parents who enjoyed a beer of two and spent the evening chatting about the seasons achievements and what the future holds; would the squad move up one or two divisions next season?
The togetherness of the squad was highlighted during the awards presentations, with all players receiving an award – the majority having a strong humorous content!
The following awards were given
Most Improved Player of the Season
Coaches Player of the Season
Players Player of the Season
Other Awards went to the following:
Most injured: Jacob Talbot
Best butter fingers: George Tillett
Most Dramatic: Brandon Cotter
Tackle bag killer (mainly in training!) Thomas Barkshire
Most Committed: Dominic Boyden
Most Slippery member of the team: Kai Gordon
Thinks he’s a pretty boy!: Arthur Garvey
Most valuable player: Ryan Healy
Best Justin Bieber Impression: Charlie Gascoine
Most Inspirational use of the National Health System: Taylor Goodman
Biggest Hair: Dylan Kelly
The evening ended with pizza (the arrival of which saw what could only be described as a herd of wildebeest being chased by a pride of lions) and frolics whilst the adults watched on at the bar!
The challenge now really starts for the Under 13’s, summer fitness training, strengthening the squad and building on this seasons success, hopefully, continue where they finished the season.
