RGC’s young hopefuls were acknowledged for their outstanding efforts throughout the season with a virtual awards ceremony.

The Gogs’ U16 side developed considerably against high-profile opposition during the campaign, which will stand them in good stead as some move up to U18 Academy level next season.

Head coach Gavin Hodgkinson was full of praise for the way his young squad stepped up to the challenge.

He said: “I know it is a cliché, but the Regional Age Grade competition is all about development and in that respect as a coaching team we could not be more pleased with how the season has gone.

“Right from the outset the players demonstrated a fantastic attitude, willing to learn and support each other at all times.

“The success that they achieved on the field is very much a reflection of the effort they put in off the field.”

An exceptional series of results saw RGC U16s occupying second position in the RAG competition, winning five and drawing two of their seven contests.

More than 35 players were used during their contests against other regions from across the country, which is further testament to the talent being utilised from across the region.

Dei Owen played a significant role for the Gogs’ and the Pwllheli product was rewarded with the Players’ Player of the Year honour, with Rhyl and District’s Osian Burt taking home the Coaches’ Player of the Year.

Pwllheli’s Gruffydd ab Ieuan developed his skills considerably and was awarded the Most Improved Back of the Year distinction, and Bethesda’s exciting talent Elis Evans won the Most Improved Forward of the Year.

Rounding off the individual accolades was Wrexham’s Gareth Parry, who was virtually presented with the RGC U16s Clubman of the Year.
