Two Hawick trophies for top player

 
 
 

Rugby

BAILEY Donaldson of Langholm won two top trophies at Hawick Youth Rugby’s awards night.
He was awarded player of the year and players’ player of the year trophy, which he shared with flanker Billy McNeil.
This is an award voted exclusively for by the players themselves for the player they feel has brought something extra to the squad during the season. Both lads got the same number of votes.
Ben Chelley and vice-captain Jamie Grant took joint second place. Scrum half Ben Scott picked up young player of the year and Ben Chelley scooped the spirit of rugby award.
This season Hawick under 18s team, which Bailey captained, won the Border Semi Junior League champions trophy, the Border cup, the Kings of the Sevens and Melrose Wasps Sevens.
Bailey scored a club record of 33 tries and 474 points in competitive games during the season.
Malcolm Grant, committee member of Hawick Youth Rugby, said: “In presenting the player of the year award, Davy Brand, president, congratulated Bailey for his outstanding season.
“He said Bailey had led by example, encouraging the newer lads to feel part of the team and continually challenging the boys to step up and give their all for the team.
“Davy also referred to the excellent relationship Hawick Youth Rugby had with Langholm Youth Rugby – committee and boys – which fostered a tremendous bond between the two clubs. He said the Milntown set-up was second to none.”
Kenneth Pool, Langholm Rugby Club and Langholm Youth Trust chairman, said: “At Langholm RFC we are delighted to see Bailey doing so well.
“He is a credit to his family and to rugby both here at Langholm and Hawick.
“We are sure Bailey has a great rugby career in front of him and the Langholm club will give him all the support and encouragement we can in the future.
“We would be delighted to see him pulling on the crimson jersey whenever he is available to do so but, of course, we are behind him every step of the way with his rugby career.”
Bailey’s dad, Kenneth, added: “We’re all very proud of him. It’s been a great four seasons with the U16s and the U18s with quite a few Langholm boys making a large contribution to their success.”
