Hundreds of Bridgnorth Rugby Club mini and junior players, aged between 4 and 16, celebrated the 2023-24 season at a special awards event held in the club’s fabulous new clubhouse on Saturday afternoon.

Among them were a number of Bridgnorth Endowed School students who received awards and recognition for their incredible achievements in the sport.

Congratulations go to Theo Skitt, from Year 9, who was presented with the U14 Player of the Year award and Year 10’s Oliver Mathers, who received the Most Improved Player award for the U15s.

The girls also triumphed with Year 9 student, Maisie Archer, being named as the Players’ Player for the girls’ U15s and Layla Cook, from Year 7, scooping the Best Newcomer award.

Bridgnorth Rugby Club’s Facebook page said: “Well done to each and every player who pulls on our shirt, everyone’s a winner” and we couldn’t agree more.

PE Teacher, Mr Chase, comments: “Photos from the event featured many more happy, smiling BES students and it’s great to see them blossoming, not only in rugby skills, but also life skills such as teamwork, confidence and resilience.”

“At Bridgnorth Endowed, we recognised the power of rugby and are currently working in partnership with BRFC, who come in to school to deliver weekly sessions under their Star Scheme programme.”

“Rugby is so beneficial to mental and physical health and we strongly encourage our students to give it a go. Right now, the club is looking to attract more girls, in particular, through a series of taster sessions on offer this summer.”
