23 Mar Leinster Rugby Future Stars Awards
Six DGS Players Receive Leinster Rugby Future Stars Award.
The second annual Leinster Rugby Future Stars Awards took place in Dundalk Institute of Technology on Wednesday 22nd March. The awards acknowledge emerging talent in the sport at schools level. The awards also highlight the role that Sports Scholarships can play at third level.
A fortnight ago a blitz competition was held by Leinster Rugby Officers among 9 schools from the North-East as a means of identifying potential nominees. From this 45 players were nominated and voting for the first team selection took place through the Argus and Drogheda Independent Newspapers.
Dundalk Grammar School had 8 players selected for the nomination and voting stages. At last night’s awards 6 of our students received awards for first team places. Among the recipients were forwards Zac Coan, Daniel Molloy and Andrew Cox while backs included Gerald Boylan, David Murdock and Max McGloin. The players were presented with their Future Stars Jerseys by Leinster Players, including local man Dave Kearney.
Well done to all the award winners and also to Jack Connolly and Tobi Akinsoylan who received nominations.
