Henry Hockenhull's consistent form during Whitchurch's record-breaking campaign in the Midlands Two West (North) was recognised with a hat-trick of awards at the club's end of season presentation dinner.

The Reds stormed to the title and promotion with a 100 per cent record, with Hockenhull missing just one of his side's 22 league games.

And the centre was the chief recipient of awards for the second year running after being named the players' player and the coach's player of the season, as well as being leading try scorer along with Joe Mullock (both with 14).

"You like to spread the awards around, but Henry fully deserves to be the coach's player for the second year in a row," said coach Scott Sturdy. "He has been so consistent all season, he missed just one game, and is a nine out of 10 player every week."

Flanker Jonathan Cope took the captain's player of the season honour, and will also replace Jake Rees as first team skipper.

Some 80 players and guests attended the dinner at the Edgeley Park club in which former Wales and British Lions forward Andy Powell proved a big hit as guest speaker. "It was a fantastic night to end what has been a tremendous season," added Sturdy.

In the second team awards, there was double for Brian Torskyj, who scooped both the captain's and players' player honours. Shaun Mazan was the third team players' player, while the captain's player award went to Martin Perry. Nathan Horton landed the colts players' player accolade, and captain Ed Clewes was the coach's player.

Jane Kay took the chairman's volunteer of the season award for her tireless work at the Edgeley Park club.

Mike Oakden will skipper the seconds, Paul Wood remains captain of the thirds, while Nathan Horton will lead the colts ahead of a July pre-season start.
