Club Person of the Year
This season's Club Person of the Year is Steph Campbell. Steph joined the Women's team in season 2015/16 and has been an ever-present and crucial team member since then. At the start of season 2019/20, Steph became team Captain, a role that she has carried out with great distinction.
Steph trains with the Women's team every Tuesday and Thursday, with matches on Sunday. In addition to this, Steph is also one of the coaches on the U16's girls team, of which her daughter Shannon is a member, coaching that team every Wednesday with matches on Saturday!!
Steph has also been a tireless fundraiser for the club. This season, she took part in the ice-bath challenge amongst other fundraisers. She is always willing to help out wherever she is needed. Steph is a true team player not only for the Women's team, but for her club.
The President’s Award is presented by the Club President to a club member for outstanding work or achievement over many seasons.This year, the President's Award goes to John Cumisky. John is a longstanding member of the club. He is a former player having first played with the club in the mid to late 1980’s. He has sat on various committees within the club over the years, including a spell on the Club Executive. John is also one of the coaches on the club’s U12’s team, with his son Daniel playing on that team. Over the past five years, John has chaired the Clubhouse development sub-committee. In that role, John spent an enormous amount of time driving the clubhouse development project. His endeavours (and the endeavours of many others who assisted with this project) came to fruition this year when our state of the art clubhouse was finally completed. On behalf of all at Balbriggan RFC, congratulations to both Steph and John on their Awards which are richly deserved, and a big thank you to both of them for all their hard work for the club.
