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.
