This was the season!
Arklow finally pulled themselves out of leinster league division 3 this year.It wasnt easy but with a nail-biting finish over Birr RFC relying on other results,Arklow clinched the fourth place for promotion.
After a long season which began last July wth preseason training the boys in red and black stuck at it until the very end. only Losing 3 games throughout the season, it was a testament to their will and exceptional fitness.
well done to the whole squad and coaches and lets hope for more of the same next year.
The annual dinner dance went down with great success. Great fun was had by all and the celebrations went on into the night! and the next day!
There were many awards handed out on the night, firstly was "tit of the year". Although there were many contenders to the title...mark van eesbeckbeing hot favourite with two seperate nominations, it went to joni butterworth with much applause.
then it was down to the serious business of young player . With and player of the year. With having such a great season this made it an incredibly hard descion to make for the coaches. After much deliberation young player went to Eoin O'Scannail for his exceptional commitment and effort throughout the year.
Player of the year was no easier with so many good players, but Dan Wyeth came out on top after taking on captaincy and playing such great rugby.
