Hornets presented with Clubmark Award
Prestigious Award for Aspatria
Aspatria Hornets rubbed shoulders with Super League players last Friday when they graced the DW Stadium's pitch to receive their Clubmark award.
A delegation travelled to Wigan to represent the club with Chairman, Algie Reynolds, Assistant Coach, Mike Hazlewood, Treasurer, Caroline Hamilton and part-time player, Craig Hamilton stepping onto the pitch to receive the award.
Wigan's Welsh international, Gil Dudson presented the award alongside the RFL's Anthony Atherton with fellow Welshman, Ben Flower lurking in the background.
The match turned out to be somewhat of an anti-climax with Wigan beating Hull KR easily. However, there was an unusual event when referee, Phil Bentham collided with a Hull player and broke his leg just as Cumbrian, Lee Mossop scored under the posts.
Algie Reynolds said 'it was a proud occasion for the club to receive this award and for me to set foot on the hallowed Wigan turf'.
Mike Hazlewood agreed after he finally found his way to the minibus which was parked near B&Q.
