Sale based Trafford MV Rugby Club have recently been nominated for a National award sponsored by Premiership Rugby Sponsors Gallagher Insurance.
The Rugby Club of the Season award recognises the efforts of Clubs nationally to be Community focused, Inclusive and Innovative. The successful Clubs will be judged on
Community Impact – how we are using your club and the game of rugby to build greater engagement, community interaction and confidence in your local town or village.
Inclusivity – how the club is/or has plans to be inclusive to all — providing opportunities across age, gender, ethnicity and mixed ability, and also to those who perhaps aren’t able to play, but still wish to be part of the club.
Innovation – how new or original methods that make the Club special – giving fresh ideas and new ways of improving the club, the pride and confidence of its members and the way it interacts with its community.
The Club has already received an initial batch of training gear as part of a potential top prize detailed below.
The winning grassroots club will be judged for how it is contributing to the future of its local community, both on and off-the-pitch.
Six shortlisted clubs will be rewarded with:
- Training equipment worth £1000
- An on-pitch training session led by local Gallagher Premiership Rugby stars
- An off-pitch business consultancy session, led by Gallagher’s risk management experts
- Invitations to the Gallagher Premiership ‘end of season’ awards, where the winner will be announced
The winning club will also receive:
- 100 tickets to the Gallagher Premiership Rugby Final 2020
- Enhanced training equipment bundle worth £2000 for their club
- The ultimate title of Gallagher Rugby Club of the Season
