IT was a memorable end to the season for Latchford Albion on Friday when they scooped two major prizes at the North West Men’s League annual awards dinner.

Forward Danny Brown won the Man of Steel award, while Alan Daintith was recognised for his work off the field by being named secretary of the year.

Chairman Mike Byron was also nominated for the prestigious Steve Prescott Award for services to amateur rugby league.

The Man of Steel prize, voted for by representatives of each league club, caps off a stellar season for Brown, who was also selected for Lancashire in their recent tri-county series and was picked to play for England Lionhearts once again, just as he had when they toured Canada last year.

Daintith, whose son Paul is a former Albion player, has given more than 20 years of service to the Victoria Park outfit and is also the treasurer for Warrington Amateur Rugby League and Warriors of Warrington Swimming Club.

Meanwhile, Albion’s preparations for the 2018 season are already well underway as they attempt to improve on 2017’s eighth-place finish in the NWML Premier Division.

If you are interested in being involved in any capacity as Latchford tackle their second season in the NWML’s top flight, contact the club via Mike Byron on 07769788995 or the Albion social media channels.
