NW Crusaders hold Awards Evening at Rydal Penrhos
October 18, 2021

The North Wales Crusaders held their annual Awards Evening at Rydal Penrhos following a successful season for the rugby league side.

Rydal Penrhos is fortunate to have exceptional facilities and an incredible location for sailing, sport and outdoor education, helping many people go on to achieve incredible sporting careers and achievements throughout the school’s illustrious history.

The school is also proud to have an association with the North Wales Crusaders, who have been busy forming links with local businesses and people to grow their presence in the area following their move from Wrexham to Parc Eirias in Colwyn Bay.

Players, coaches and supporters descended on Rydal Penrhos for the Crusaders’ annual End of Season Awards ceremony on Saturday 16 October, which was held in the school’s fantastic Ferguson Centre.

It proved to be a fantastic occasion for those in attendance, which celebrated a tremendous campaign for the Crusaders that eventually came up a little short in the playoffs in pursuit of promotion.

A lavish meal was put on by the school’s catering staff from Holroyd Howe at the event, with a large number also receiving special awards in recognition of their outstanding accomplishments throughout the campaign.

One of the big winners from the evening was Jordan Gibson, who took home the Players’ Player of the Season and Fans’ Player of the Season after a sensational series of performances to further enhance his growing reputation.

Alex Eckley won the Young Player of the Year Award, with Conrad Anderson presented with the Jacqui Walker Most Contributed to the Club Award for all the fantastic work he does off the field.

The duo of Rob Massam and Tom Johnson were crowned joint-winners of the Coach’s Player of the Season. Rob also won the Try of the Year after his memorable score against Barrow Raiders.

Rydal Penrhos has formed a successful working partnership with the Crusaders after the rugby league side made their move, with the club holding events and making use of the first-class facilities on offer during training weekends in the not-too-distant future.

Crusaders also offered all pupils free season tickets for the recent campaign and will be working on further incentives so there are plenty of benefits for everyone involved.
