2015-2016 Rugby Awards Dinner

On the evening of Tuesday 15th March Grosvenor’s staged its annual end-of-year Awards Dinner as in excess of one hundred pupils from forms two – upper sixth congregated at The Canteen Belfast, situated on the Belmont Road, to celebrate another season in the life of GGS rugby.

Following a delicious meal and speeches from the coaches of each respective side, awards were distributed at the culmination of the event, with two prizes being awarded within each team – one for Player of the Year and the other for either Player of the Year (runner-up) or Most Improved Player. Recipients of these awards were as follows: Under 13 Player of the Year – Josh Patterson, Most Improved Player – Harrison McNarry; Under 14 Player of the Year – Alistair Norton, Most Improved – William Steele; Medallion Player of the Year – James McMaster, Most Improved – Ryan Grieve; Second XV Player of the Year – Matthew Logan, Most Improved – James Sims; First XV Player of the Year – Jos McConkey, Most Improved – Ewan Renfrew.

This year’s Awards Dinner comes at the end of a season in which the School’s 1st XV performed superbly to reach the final of the Danske Bank Ulster Schools’ Bowl competition, unfortunately losing out in the final to Portra Royal last week.

Many thanks to Medallion coach Mr Andrew White who was responsible for the organization of this year’s event, as well ad the many other coaches within the school, without whom the sport would simply not be able to run.

We look forward to following the continued successes of our rugby teams again next season.
