A village sports club has been named rugby club of the year.

Winscombe Rugby Club was given the prestigious title at the Crabbie’s National Rugby Awards.

The club was up against 1,000 other nominees and members say they are delighted to win the coveted title after a season of unprecedented success.

The senior team won the Somerset Premier League and progressed to the South West Division for the first time, while junior teams reached many local finals with the under-15s winning the Bristol Combination Cup.

The under-15 and under-18 girls’ teams also became dual national champions at both levels.

Club chairman Kevin Rosser said: “The award is fantastic recognition not only of our achievements on the pitch but for the club as a whole.

“Players, volunteers, parents, helpers and supporters, all working together to help us flourish.”
