The RFL Benevolent Fund hosted the prestigious RFL Roll of Honor awards at the Galpharm Stadium.

The awards are to honour lifelong services to the game of rugby league. MC David Howes, comedian Lee Roberts provided the entertainment shared by 200 guests, mainly supported by ex-players associations. Chief Executive Nigel Wood gave the awards to the three deserving awardees. Fred Lindop the referee, Peter Fox the coach, and Ron Earnshaw the ever-present stalwart of fundraising for his beloved Batley club.

“It was a great occasion, with much camaraderie and a chance for the Benevolent Fund to explain its purpose and role within the game,” explained Chairman Tim Adams. “We hope this becomes an annual event within the RFL Benevolent Funds calendar.” he added.
