Bristol Rugby And Bristol City Honoured At Awards Evening

Both Bristol City and Bristol Rugby were honoured at the annual Bristol Sporting Club evening held at The Bristol hotel on Monday, 17th October.

The event, which featured an evening of amateur boxing between the Western Counties and the Royal Navy, is  used to celebrate the successes of other sports in the area and raise funds to support amateur boxers. 

Bristol Rugby CEO Steve Gorvett collected an award on behalf of Bristol Rugby, after the club achieved promotion to the Aviva Premiership in the 2015/16 season - while Bristol City director Doug Harman collected an award to mark the club’s double-winning success of 2014/15. 

The Bristol Sporting Club is celebrating its 50th anniversary  after being formed in 1967.

Bristol’s Chris Sanigar was also honoured for his services to boxing.

Steve Gorvett, chief executive of Bristol Rugby, said: “It was an honour to collect this award on behalf of Bristol Rugby, to mark our promotion back to rugby’s top flight."

Bristol City Football Club director, Doug Harman said: “It is great to come together as clubs and  celebrate sport in our city.
