Calderdale Sports Awards win for club
Old Rishworthian Rugby Union Football Club has received another award - this time locally. The club gained the Amateur Club of the Year status at the annual Calderdale Sport Awards hosted by the Halifax Courier Group at The Venue, Barkisland.

Last month the club received the Rugby Football Union's Gold Standard Legacy award from its Rugby Development Director Steve Grainger. That award, presented to only 15 clubs in the country, helped the club towards its latest award, alongside the work done to extend and improve the clubhouse and the success of the thriving junior set-up.

A group of officials from the club received the Calderdale award and one of the founders of the club's junior section, Steve Cockroft, explained how the section had grown from small beginnings 12 years ago and ran teams for all age groups from under-six to under-17.The club beat off nominations from a number of other sporting clubs.

Juniors chairman Dave Butler was also a nominee in the section for junior managers and there was success too for the club's under-17s coach Andy Day, who won a lifetime achievement award to mark his playing career with Old Crossleyans.
