A talented young rugby player was rewarded for his outstanding displays at the Morpeth RFC junior section end-of-season presentations.
Fifteen-year-old Stobhill youngster Jonny Waters won the coveted Player-of-the-Year trophy for his success playing at prop for the U15s team, which has enjoyed another good campaign.
His achievement came after coaches gave him top marks for his high standard of play throughout the season, all-round commitment to the team and general positive attitude.He was joined on the winners’ podium by Caleb Williamson, from Ashington, and Andrew Holland, from Morpeth, who picked up the Most Improved and Best Attitude awards respectively.
Head coach Dave Chattaway said: “Well done to all the players on another successful campaign and to Jonny in particular.
“No one deserves this more than him. He has had a fantastic season, leading from the front and playing competitive rugby over the last year with commitment in all areas of his play. He also achieved county honours, so a doubly successful campaign for him this year.
“Congratulations also to Caleb, who has had a fantastic debut season for us, and Andrew Holland on their achievements. Both have had a terrific season and shown their commitment to the squad with a great attitude, while improving hugely as players with each match.”
