The presentation evening was supported by sponsors Kuka Robotics UK and Clifton Road Chiropractic as awards were handed out by players from the men’s and ladies’ senior teams, club dignitaries and Rugby Lions President, David Owen.

“Our presentation evenings are a fantastic opportunity to celebrate the achievements of all our players,” said newly-elected Minis & Juniors Vice-Chairman, Jamie Lambert.

“It brings the whole club together and it is great to see the clubhouse packed every year as one big family.

“We offer a fun and enjoyable playing environment for boys and girls and our newly-created CUBS section gets children enjoying rugby skills from just 18 months old!

“Our minis, in particular, have seen a good growth in player numbers over the past season and we look forward to welcoming more players across all age groups when the new season kicks off in September.

“With the Rugby World Cup starting that same month, we are hoping to see more children inspired to follow their idols and take up club rugby.

“With the help of our generous sponsors Clifton Road Chiropractic, Kuka UK and Topps Tiles Rugby, we have been able to invest in new training equipment for our M&Js and we can’t wait to see the children’s faces when this is unveiled to them!”

Registration for the new season takes place on Sunday September 1, for juniors (ages 12-18) and Sunday, September 8 for minis (aged 5+).
