Seal of Approval Club of the Year Award 2009/10
Winner: Keswick RFC
It says much for Keswick RFC that they even had time to complete the application form for this award given their seemingly relentless problems with flooding. However, 2009/10 has been a year of triumph as well as adversity for the Cumbrian club and having finished Runners' Up in the Seal of Approval section last season, their elevation to top spot is a fitting tribute to all the workers at Davidson Park. With over £250,000 raised towards pitch drainage and floodlighting, a new girls' tournament attracting 400 players, six new Level 1 coaches, six new ELRA referees and four new committee members being recruited, 'business as usual' has been proceeding at the club which underlines the tremendous spirit at this RU outpost.
