Regional Winners in the 2020 Scottish Rugby Development Awards


The Scottish Rugby Development Awards celebrate and recognise the efforts of players, coaches, match officials and volunteers from the domestic game across all five regions of Scotland. The five winners from both regions came together with Scottish Rugby officials for the ceremony.

Scottish Rugby’s Regional Director for Caledonia Midlands Steve Turnbull said:

“Sunday was a fantastic day to recognise our deserved winners of our regional Development Awards. It was a great day of celebration and an important one for us to say thank you to the volunteers for all the work they do for their clubs, schools and local communities.These are volunteers who put in a huge amount of time and effort and are crucial to the sustainability and development of the game. It was nice to spend some social time and enjoy their company in hospitality at the Scotland v France game.”

The presentation took place before the Guinness Six Nations Scotland v France match and awards were presented across five categories including; Mitsubishi Motors Volunteer of the season in youth rugby, Mitsubishi Motors Volunteer of the season in schools' rugby, Mitsubishi Motors Young volunteer of the season, Tennent's Volunteer of the season in adult rugby and Tennent's Community club of the season.
