UBRFC End of Season Dinner

2 months ago By Alex Brown

2017/18 season draws to a close with an evening of awards, songs and sad goodbyes

On Saturday (5th May), UBRFC returned to The Bristol Hotel for the annual end of season dinner, with freshmen, committee members and soon-to-be-departing third years all present to celebrate what has been an eventful season for the club.

Speeches were given by captains and coaches of all teams, as well as a few words from Bob Reeves, whose support for the club this season has been invaluable. The most memorable event of the night however was a ode to the leavers from UBRFC's Poet Laureate, Patrick 'Boris' Hagerty, which brought a combination of tears and laughter from the assembled crowd.

'Reds' were issued to Ben Gompels and Max Cresswell in recognition of their exceptional efforts this season on the pitch, and awards were also given out to standout players of the season from all teams, which are listed as follows:

Clubman of the Year: Mac Dale
