SALISBURY'S Rugby players enjoyed their end of season dinner after all three teams rushed back from their away fixtures.

Director of Rugby Richard Lloyd expressed his thanks to the team captains, coaches, chairman of selectors Barry White, match secretary Neil Bowditch and United manager Ian Wilkins for all their hard work and success across the four Senior teams.

Lloyd explained that unlike many other clubs Salisbury's issue was not with a low number of players, but getting more playing regularly to stabilise the teams.

"If all our best players were available each week all four teams would be contesting promotion spots," said Lloyd.

Adding that all teams should be proud of their good disciplinary record and playing the full 80 minutes regardless of the result.

The high point of the evening, after skipper Josh Green's now legendary poem for the season, are the awards.

Green himself won the Player of the Year trophy whilst Joe Goldsmith was rewarded for his string of fine performances with the Players' Player.

Most improved was hotly contested but Rory Mactaggart's form since Christmas clinched it.

Young Player went to Joe Tully whilst the other teams Players of the Year were Laglagi, Scotty Nicol and Will Penton.

It was also announced that the Women's team would be entering the league in the following season, and their table cheered Player of the Year Tess Fitz.

The final award was made to departing coach Michael 'Taff' Bamsay who was thanked by Lloyd and the players for his valuable contribution over the past three years to Salisbury's attractive style of play.
