South Yorkshire Rugby Awards

On Saturday night we are proud to be hosting the South Yorkshire Rugby Awards in the Valley Room.

The event celebrates the volunteers who keep our game alive at a grassroots level.  As part of the celebration over the next few days, as well as wishing the nominees well, we would like to share with our wider rugby family the names of those nominated and just a part of the citation accompanying their nomination.

Today the nominees for Club Volunteer of the Year Award are:

Elaine Bonsall: Dinnington R.U.F.C.

“Elaine has recently resigned as Safeguarding Officer at the Club. Throughout her 10 years working in the post she has managed to make the position high profile within the club with parents, players and coaches. She ensured that Safeguarding had a prominent part in the life of the Club by placing it as a priority on the monthly committee meetings. “

Amy Plavey: Doncaster Phoenix R.U.F.C.

“The reason for the nomination goes beyond that in her time she has increased the profile of the club as an Ambassador between all the clubs we play. She has improved relations with Castle Park and has organised numerous pre-match dinners and functions, which is, time consuming and increases our profile and adds some much needed revenue.”

Nick Smart: Wortley R.U.F.C

“As a club Wortley have completed a significant facility improvement project with the creation of two high quality natural turf pitches and new car park. There has been a lot of hard work by the enthusiastic and commit volunteers at the club and Nick has played a key role in the project leading the fund raising effort, which raised over £210,000.”

Best of luck and thank you for all you do to all the nominees from the wider South Yorkshire Rugby family.
