HORNETS Rugby Club received the prestigious Whistlers Trophy award at the Bristol Referee’s Society annual luncheon, held at Avonmouth Rugby Club.
The award is voted for by the referees themselves, with the criteria for the award based on hospitality and conduct of players and supporters of clubs.
Chairman Paul Davidson said: “We are extremely proud to receive this award, we always try and make everybody welcome at our ground, especially the match day officials.
“We cannot express the importance of the referees enough, they give up their free time which allows clubs, players and supporters to enjoy their weekends. It is important the referees enjoy the occasion and are shown the respect they deserve.”
