Awards Presentation 2018-19
The annual awards presentation for the senior part of the club took place on Saturday 6th April. St Ives gained a bonus point victory in their final home match of the season against Hornets. This was followed by a hog roast and, in the early evening, the presentations were made.
The club recognises that once a trophy, cup, shield or bowl is returned by the recipient, there is no lasting memento of the award received. Therefore, recipients from 2018 received there mementos during the presentations, while this year’s winners were given a medal at the same time.
Below is a full list of recipients since 2016, with photos where possible.
