Following voting by the Gloucester Rugby Season Ticket Holders, Olivier Azam and Olly Morgan have been named as Player and Young Player of the Season respectively.
Azam deservedly won the Player of the Season award with Olly Morgan in second place and Iain Balshaw in third.
The French international hooker is in his eighth season at Kingsholm. He made his Gloucester debut in 2000-1 and has gone on to make nearly 200 appearances in total establishing himself as a firm favourite with the Kingsholm regulars.
It may come as a surprise to some that Morgan was named Young Player of the Season as he's been a first team regular for four seasons now.
However, he made his first team debut as a 19 year old and, aged 23 at the start of this season, still qualifies for the Young Player award!
Both players expressed their delight when told of the decisions with Olivier summing it up for the pair of them when he told www.gloucesterrugby.co.uk that the award "...was special because it comes from the supporters..."
The presentations were due to have been made following the Worcester game on Tuesday evening but had to be postponed at short notice and will be made at the first available opportunity at Kingsholm in front of the pair's home crowd.
Congratulations to both and many thanks to all the Season Ticket Holders who voted and also to Worthington's for their continued support with their sponsorship of the trophies.

Speaking to the local media on Thursday, Matt Kvesic was looking forward to the trip to Newcastle Falcons, and the captain is looking to lead from the front with plenty for the Cherry and Whites to work on.
Gloucester saw a 12-0 lead overturned by Harlequins on Friday night as the visitors ran out 22-15 winners. After the game, Director of Rugby David Humphreys spoke about missed opportunities on the night.
Speaking to the local media on Thursday, James Hudson explained his excitement for tonight's game with Harlequins and that he is backing the Cherry and White squad to impress during the next set of Aviva Premiership games.
Despite a dream start at Kingston Park, scoring a try after just 26 seconds, Gloucester couldn't capitalise against a dogged Newcastle Falcons side. Too many penalties were conceded and too many errors made as the Falcons prevailed 20-10.
There are three changes to Gloucester Rugby's starting line-up for Friday evening's Aviva Premiership fixture away at Newcastle Falcons. Steve McColl will make his first Premiership start for the club.
