Rejuvenated March Bears celebrate rollercoaster season with dinner dance
MARCH Bears celebrated a fantastic season as the rejuvenated rugby club held their 42nd annual dinner dance.
March Conservative Club hosted the Bears as they brought the curtain down on a rollercoaster of a season.
The club had suffered a string of early-season thumpings before returning in style after Christmas, recording a series of crushing wins and losing only two games out of 10.
Jonathan Beavis won the coaches’ player of the year and the first XV player of the year, while Simon Altoff took the captain’s cup.
Legends player of the year was Jason Mottram, legends captain’s cup winner was Gary Parmenter and club man of the year was Rob Whyman. Matty Day and John Aspinwall finished as the leading try-scorers.
The volunteer award was given to Reg Flack and Clairice Pepper won the president’s cup.
President Barry Feetham praised the impact of coaches Richard Horne and Carl Moore and thanked the players and volunteers for their persistence.
