January 2019: Player of the month awards

By James Hennigan

Dafydd Robert-Harry, Josh Earl and Dave Clarkson are rewarded with a Bedians wooly hat

January's player of month awards go to:
1st XV - Dafydd Roberts-Harry
2nd XV - Josh Earl
3rd XV - Dave Clarkson

Commenting on the first fifteen award, club captain Ben Rogerson said,
"The first team had two big league matches in January against Newton le Willows and Vagabonds. Dafydd produced a match of the match display against Newton with a commanding performance at fly half, scoring a try, two assists and kicking six from six off the tee.
Against Vagabonds Dafydd was a key performer in a tight away win on the Isle of Man, kicking well and tackling solidly all game. If anyone deserves a wooly hat to keep warm (in Manchester's current heatwave) it is Daff!"

The second fifteen player of the month is Josh Earl, he played in all of the 2s matches in January and has been a really solid and reliable performer. His no nonsense style of play has made him a formidable opponent on the field, the back rower is as comfortable in attack as he is in defence.

The third fifteen player of the month goes to Dave Clarkson, known for his barnstorming runs and 30m tries. Dave is a versatile forward comfortable in the front, second and back row of the scrum, he can be occasionally found at 12 too! His strong performances against Heaton Moor and North Manchester earned him January's accolade amongst some hot competition in the third team.
