A VOLUNTEER with Keighley RUFC has won recognition for his efforts.

William Alden Phillips was among rugby club nominees from across the region to receive awards in a ceremony at Luscombe Mitsubishi Leeds.

England Rugby and Mitsubishi Motors combined to present the accolades.

Over 30 winners were each given a branded fleece and certificate.

Graham Smithson, Luscombe Mitsubishi Leeds sales manager, said: “We were delighted with the evening.

“The turnout was outstanding, which highlights what a great job Mitsubishi is doing in supporting rugby union at grassroots level.”

The awards are part of Mitsubishi Motors’ volunteer recognition programme, a partnership with England Rugby.
