2015 Middlesex Rugby VOLUNTEER APPRECIATION AWARDS
The 2015 annual Community Rugby Volunteer Appreciation took on Friday 26th June at London Welsh RFC.
The Volunteer Appreciation Awards are the County’s way of recognising the hard work our volunteers do throughout the season to keep clubs running and rewarding those key individuals for their hard work. The dinner also gives clubs and volunteer co-ordinators the opportunity to network and share ideas with others.
President’s VII Awards
The President’s VII awards recognise clubs who have contributed to the development of the game of rugby. Awards were presented in the following categories:
Expanding and Developing the Game: The Club has done most in working on recruitment to grow their playing strength during the season.

Belsize Park completed a clean sweep this weekend with 1s,2s,4s, Bulls and Vets all winning.
The 4s victory, 15 -17 at home to Tring IV ensured their promotion with three games still to go. A significant achievement given their first year of league rugby down in no small part to talismanic captain Colum Harkin.
The first team beat Old Streetonians 39 – 31. Full match report available here.
The 2s beat Fullerians 2nds 15 -0, the Bulls beat Hillingdon Abbotts 2nds 75-5 and the mighty Vets beat their Kilburn counterparts 19 -5.
This weekend Belsize Park put out FIVE full strength squads! Starting 2015 with a bang and able to show how the strength and depth of of our Club keeps on growing. This season has already seen us build on the merits of last season and we don’t want it to stop there with four teams fighting for promotion and in contention to win their respective leagues!
The weekends results were;
1s W – Belsize 1sts 30-5 Wellwyn RFC
The first team started their New Year with a gutsy performance against fellow promotion hopefuls Welwyn. Hard running from John Corellis and Miran Serdarevich got them over the white wash in the first half and in the second Tricky Wilson and Will Allen crossed after mazy running in open play. This leaves Belsize in 3rd but equal on points with 2nd placed Welwyn, 6 behind Fullerians. Match report.
2s L – Bishop’s Stortford III 23 -19 Belsize 2nds
3s W – Belsize 3rds 88-14 Old Isleworthians II
Belsize 3s continued their perfect season making it 10 from 10 in the league with a 88-14 win over Old Isleworthians IIs. Flanker James Hardy was brutal as ever in defence allowing Scrum half Andrew Winder scored 4 tries while skipper and fly half Dave Tink collected 27 points. Belsize have a top of the league clash with 2nd placed Kilburn IIs next Saturday away.
4s L – Barnes Vets 33 – 7 Belsize 4ths
5s W – Ilford Wanderers 4s 8 – 52 Belsize Bulls
We will have 5 games on Saturday, with all the league XVs playing competitive rugby and another good friendly lined up for the Bulls, which we are hoping to move to the park. The highlight will no doubt be the 1s & 2s double header at our friends in Hackney, although the 3s & 4s also both have tough away games.
