Longford Senior Player Awards 2023

Longford Rugby Clubs annual senior players awards took place on Friday evening. The awards were preceded by the annual Derek Belton XV v Derek Bannon XV game in memory of the club’s two playing members sadly no longer with us.

The games teams comprised of players from the U18 squad who recently won the Leinster plate, in addition to a wide age ranging number of current and former players. The game itself was very entertaining with a few golden oldies keen to remind us of their silky skills with ball in hand!

Tries were aplenty for both sides with youngsters Sam Davis, Brian O’Ferrell and Sergi Madden all impressing.

The awards presentation MC was club Vice President, Karen Lennon, who called on Danny McHugh to introduce the Leinster Plate winning U18 team who were each presented with their winning jerseys. Following that the Senior Ladies nominees stepped up for their awards.
