The prestigious award was presented to club coach Ian Rees by Andrew Sarek from the RFU (pictured). The Mini and Junior Seal of Approval rewards clubs who are well run and have a good system in place for bringing players through from when they start rugby to when they move on into senior rugby.

The scheme makes sure all clubs which have the award perform at an acceptable standard.

The club has been working hard for the past year to qualify for the reward. Coach Ian Rees has been an important part of this and has spent many hours getting the club to the required level. He said: “The success we have had on the pitch, with the club getting promoted to London Division Two North-East, has been mirrored off the pitch with the organisation of the club taking a big step forward”.

The hard work looks set to continue as the club is now keen to push on and get the whole Club Seal of Approval.
