Four local men have been awarded the Antrim Community Excellence Award for Culture, Arts and Sport.
Sean O’Connor, Ivan Millar, Paul Morriss, and John Kennedy have worked unceasingly to transform a squad of 22 under 13 rugby novices from Randalstown Rugby Club into a cup winning side.
Every week since the rugby season started in the autumn of last year, they have turned out in all weathers to impart their rugby knowledge, motivational skills and experience to transform this squad of young men.
Regardless of the religious or ethnic background of these young boys they have been encouraged to trust each other and play as a team.
Their unselfish, dedicated and professional commitment makes them highly deserving of the Antrim Community Excellence Award.
