End of Season Award winners named!
12th June 2020
The Votes have been counted and the winners of the 2019/20 Player of the Season & Try of the Season have been confirmed.
Player of the Season| Sponsored by Lydia Lydia Gin | Robin Hislop– following a stand out campaign, which saw the loose head prop named in both The Rugby Paper & Greene King IPA Championship Team’s of the Season, Bomber now adds Knights’ Player of the Season to this term’s accolades.
The Scotsman took 28% of the public vote with lock Matt Challinor in second place & fly half Sam Olver third and we are delighted that all three will part of the Knights squad for 2020/21.
Try of the Season | Sponsored by Dilly Dilly Gin | Kyle Evans– Wing Kyle Evans had two of his try-scoring efforts from 2019/20 shortlisted for the Try of the Season vote – both from the same game.
In what was undoubtedly the performance of the season, the 38-10 Championship win over Jersey at Castle Park, Kyle bagged a hat-trick and it was the opener from that game (Try C) that received almost 50% of the total vote.
Tyson Lewis’ finish from a Steve McColl chip forward against Yorkshire Carnegie was the runner up with Evans’ 2nd in third place.
A huge congratulation to both our winners & massive thank you to our award sponsors Dilly Dily & Lydia Lydia Gin – click to check out the Laneham based Gin distillers fantastic range of products.
