2015 Awards Night – Celebrating Our Successes

On Friday 4th December, the Oxford Saints gathered to celebrate the successful 2015 season

With a large number of players, staff, friends and family in attendance, the 2015 Awards Night was a great evening. Held at the Oxford Social Club, the evening featured a 3 course meal and live music from the duo cover group All Star.

Once the meal was finished head coach Andrew Day took to the stage and began the awards ceremony beginning with the hall of fame inductees for 2015.

Receiving the special Roger Hedges Award was former player and head coach Chris Janes. Chris has a long history with the Saints and has helped the club through difficult times in it’s past.

He is still involved with the club frequently and is often on the sidelines doing his excellent photography work. Most photos you see of the Oxford Saints in action are from his generous work.

After the Hall of Fame inductees and the presentation of the Roger Hedges Awards, head coach Andrew Day moved on to present the Player Awards.

Acknowledging a successful season which saw the Saints return to playoff football, the club recognised player contributions on and off the field.
