Dougall scoops prestigious club awards
Titans star open side flanker and stand-in skipper Sean Dougall scooped the main prizes at the Titans end of season awards ceremony.
Dougall, who has enjoyed an outstanding season with the Clifton Lane outfit, deservedly collected the “Player of the Year” and “Players Player of the Year” accolades.
To be recognise by ones colleagues is always acknowledged to be the most prestigious award to receive and Dougall’s outstanding performances throughout the season, combined with his hard-working, professional approach for the team was duly recognised.
A delighted Dougall commented, “It means a lot to me to receive these important awards, but it’s a team game and without the rest of the boys input I couldn’t possibly have won them. So it’s a big thank you to them.”
The important and equally esteemed award for the “Young Player of the Season” went to rising Titans star Carl Kirwan.
Kirwan has impressed mightily during his first season with the Titans and has adapted to Championship rugby remarkably well, having joined from his home town club of Middlesbrough last summer.
The coaching staff at Clifton Lane has high hopes that next term Kirwan will kick-on further and become an integral part of their push for a top-end finish in the Championship.
Kirwan remarked, “I’m both surprised and delighted to pick-up this award. I’ve had a good first year here and I’ll be pushing hard to improve even more next season.”
