Taking the honours at the presentation evening where captain Thompson; player of the season, Mitchelson, most improved player; Martin, top try scorer; and Kai Burn, top tackler.

The under-13s finished the season as beaten finalists in the county plate.

Taking the honours for them where Jay Robinson, player of the season; and Elliott Moore, most improved.

The under-12s honours went to Tom Marshall, player of the season; and Scott Bates, most improved.

As this was the 50th anniversary season of Blyth Rugby Football Club, special awards were given for outstanding achievement to Owen Nicholson, Jay Robinson and Tom Marshall, with Marshall and Robinson also accepted into Northumberland’s Rugby School of Excellence.
