The 2019/20 season was ended some time ago owing to the Coronavirus pandemic.
With such a sudden ending to the campaign and the subsequent lockdown restrictions, it meant no end of season awards could be held.
Withycombe who have a large, and thriving junior section, were determined that the youngsters would not miss out and so the Raleigh Park club held a virtual awards ceremony for each age group.
The Withy junior section coaches were asked to put together video presentations to highlight their age groups and announce the winners of each award with their age groups. These were then released across each night to make it a week of ‘announcements’ for the various age groups.
The club are looking to host a celebration party for all when we can safely return and be together as a club, the award winners will then receive their physical trophies, medals etc.
Here then, are the Withycombe RFC junior awards winners for the 2019/20 season
Each child to receive a medal for participating in a brilliant season and enjoying all aspects of their rugby.
