A full house was the order of the night as a packed ballroom at the seven stars Hotel Totnes, hosted Totnes RFC Annual awards evening.

Masters of ceremonies for the evening were Mr J T Bunny Williams and Tim Woodward, who called upon club president Barry Snell to welcome everyone to the club’s annual dinner and dance.

There were lots of bets as to who would get this year’s awards and there was a great competition and rivalry between all players in the first XV, the Legends and the Blue­birds teams.

Names like James Ruddock, Josh Green, Tim Woodward, Arron Bartlett, Steve Edwards, Donna, Flick, Georgia, Laura and Emma were being bantered around as being possible winners.

However, it was left to outgoing club Chairman Lex Keen to announce the winners of this year’s Totnes Rugby Club awards.
