Congratulations to Ray on receiving the Direct Community Champion Award.

Ray was presented with his award on stage at the RLF Kingstone Press Championship & League 1 Gala Dinner at the Midland Hotel, Manchester last Monday night.
The citation reads,

Ray is a inspiring winner of the award and his dedication to the sport worthy of recognition. His enthusiasm and passion for the sport of Rugby League would put someone half his age to shame!

The former player turned coach is involved in a number of organisations across the game supporting fellow ex players and encouraging youth development.

Ray has a passion for protecting the heritage of the game be that of individual clubs or the game as a whole and has invested hours of time raising much needed funds for a variety of different worthy projects over the years.

We received nominations for Ray across the Rugby League family and were blown away by just how many lives his work has touched over a long period of time.

Ray is a magnificent ambassador not only for the sport, but for many community projects he willingly gives his limited spare time to with equal passion and gusto.

A true gentleman and respected throughout Rugby League, that is Ray Abbey our 2017 Community Champion.

Before the start of Hunslet RLFC home game v London Skolars on Sunday 17th September K.O. 3.00pm there will be a minutes applause in honourer of Ex Parkside player Don Watson who Sadley passed away in August this year.

Don had not been in the best of health for a long time but along with his son as carer he always made the effort to make the journey and attend the Ex Parkside annual reunion

Dons family will be attending the game so if possible as past Parkside players could we make the effort the to attend say our final goodbye to a great man.
