Awards Dinner a great success

Wasps held their annual End of Season Awards Dinner at the London Marriott Hotel, Grosvenor Square, which saw more than 300 people congregate to celebrate the achievements of the past season.

Hosted by Martin Bayfield, featuring guest Auctioneer Jonny Gould, the Awards Dinner was a chance to celebrate and thank players, staff, sponsors and supporters for all their efforts over the season.

James Haskell picked up two awards on the night winning Supporters’ Player of the Year sponsored by 5G Communications and joint-winning the Players’ Player of the Year, sponsored by Aeropeople, alongside Will Helu.

Jake Cooper-Woolley won the Young Player of the Year award, sponsored by Galbraith’s, for a member of the first team under 23, holding off competition from Joe Launchbury, Nathan Hughes and Sam Jones.

Alex Lundberg picked up the Academy Player of the Year award, while Tom Varndell was awarded the Community Player of the Year, sponsored by DS Smith.

Try of the Season, sponsored by EMC, went to Christian Wade for his scintillating individual effort against Gloucester Rugby and Terry Evans picked up the Club Person of the Year award.

At the dinner, both Tom Palmer and Hugo Southwell were also recognised for their contribution to the Club with caps for Outstanding Services to Wasps.
