Danny Cipriani and Ollie Thorley scoop Player and Young Player of the Season awards
Following Saturday’s Gallagher Premiership victory over the Newcastle Falcons, Danny Cipriani and Ollie Thorley were named Player and Young Player of the Season respectively, as voted for by Gloucester Rugby supporters.

The votes were cast over a number of weeks, and both awards were as hotly contested as always.

Ollie Thorley was named Stowford Press Young Player of the Season ahead of Ruan Ackermann in second place and Jake Polledri in third. Ollie was presented with his award by Holly Chadwick, Brand Manager of Stowford Press.

Danny Cipriani was presented the Stowford Press Player of the Season Award, by Bob Silk the lucky supporter who was randomly selected to present the award from the voters, alongside Holly Chadwick from Stowford Press. 

Danny was a popular choice as Player of the Season, although he was pushed hard by Ben Morgan and Fraser Balmain who finished in second and third place.  In addition, Danny was presented with the Doug Wadley Shield by Alan Wadley.
