Hunslet celebrates community rugby stars

At the Hunslet Club on Saturday night honours were even between the three Hunslet community rugby clubs, with each picking up one trophy apiece.

Dyson Nicholson with the Grabsie Wilson Memorial Award

Chev Walker was there to present the awards with Hunslet Warriors Under 16s Dyson Nicholson winning the Grabsie Wilson Memorial Award. Other awards went to Andrew Hullock of Hunslet Club Parkside, voted open age player of the year, with Beeston Broncos Melanie Tottie picking up the club person of the year award.

A full house including many Hunslet Ex Parksiders were entertained by compere Malcolm Lord and gifts were auctioned, which raised £800 for the three clubs plus the SITraN Institute for Tranlational Neuroscience. Ex Parksider Ken Sykes, recent winner of RFL award for services to Community Rugby League, won the raffle and kindly donated half of winnings back into the pot.
