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 this week, John Afoa described the hard work that the Cherry and White have been putting in and that he is fighting fit ready for Saturday's European Rugby Challenge Cup semi final clash with Exeter Chiefs.
Gloucester Rugby face Exeter Chiefs this Saturday in the European Rugby Challenge Cup semi-final, and Charlie Sharples, who starts at full back is relishing the challenge of the big Kingsholm occasion.
Gloucester meet the Exeter Chiefs for the fourth time in competitive action this weekend, this time in the semi-final of the European Rugby Challenge Cup. Director of Rugby David Humphreys told the local media this week that this is the sort of game that Gloucester want to be involved in on a regular basis and that he and his team are looking forward to it.
Following the 29-26 loss to Harlequins, club captain Billy Twelvetrees spoke of his disappointment that the Cherry and Whites were unable to cash in on the home side's indiscipline and lose a lead on Saturday afternoon.
Number eight Gareth Evans admitted to a collective feeling of frustration as Gloucester lost narrowly at Harlequins on Saturday, but insisted that there are plenty of positives to draw upon ahead of next Saturday's European Rugby Challenge Cup semi-final at home to Exeter.
Gloucester travel to the Stoop on Saturday afternoon to take on Harlequins in the Aviva Premiership. The Cherry and Whites make just two changes from last weekend's win over Connacht as they seek consistency and continuity in their play as Nick Walshe told the local media this week.
The Gloucester Rugby Ticket office can advise that the club's initial allocation of tickets for the European Rugby Challenge Cup Final has sold out. However, the club has secured an additional allocation of tickets from EPCR which will go on sale on Monday.
Following Saturday evening's exciting European Rugby Challenge Cup semi-final victory over Exeter Chiefs, the Ticket Office at Kingsholm will be open on Sunday from 11am to 3pm for Club Members to purchase tickets for the Final.
Gloucester Rugby qualified for their first European final since 2006 as they defeated the in-form Exeter Chiefs by 30 points to 19 in a thrilling semi-final at Kingsholm on Saturday evening. The club photographer caught the best of the action.
Recent meetings between these two teams have often been thrillers, and this was no exception. It went down to the final few minutes, but Gloucester produced the goods when it mattered to qualify for the European Rugby Challenge Cup Final, beating Exeter 30-19.
