England Touch recognises success at reception in St Helier

England Touch recognises success at reception in St Helier

On Sunday 10 July 2016, England Touch hosted their European Touch Championships post-tournament reception in Fort Regent. Overlooking St Helier as the sun set after the final day of competition, the 200-strong England touring party celebrated their collective success as well as recognising both contributions from staff and individuals player achievements.

Firstly, the wonderful England staff received their accolades and thanks. The nine England teams were supported by a dedicated back-room team of 10 physiotherapists, five massage therapists, five sports science staff and seven-strong high performance management team.

Then for each team, a Players’ Player and Coaches MVP award was presented. The 2016 awards recipients are listed below:

Finally, at the end of the evening a most remarkable achievement was recognised: the England Women’s Open captain, Kylie Hutchison was presented with a commemorative award having attained her 100th international cap for England in the 4-3 final victory against Wales earlier in the day. Most significantly, all one hundred caps were as a player in an opens grade, and we believe this is the first time it has been achieved in the history of Touch.

The event capped off a very successful tournament for England Touch.

We are England Touch

We are the players. We are the supporters, willing us on. We are the medals, waiting to be won. We are the touchdowns, waiting to be scored. We are the men and women of all ages. We are the talent of today. We are the potential for tomorrow. We are one team. We are England Touch
