Centre Peter Lucock, 22, has capped an outstanding season for Yorkshire Carnegie by being named the side’s Player of Year for 2014-15 at the club’s annual awards dinner.

Leeds-born Lucock has become a mainstay of the Yorkshire Carnegie side this season, starting all but one game throughout the Greene King IPA Championship and scoring two tries. The young back holds the distinction of being the only player to have ever come right through the club from mini rugby level having joined Leeds RUFC when it was first formed and briefly ran a minis section.
 
Lucock beat hooker Jack Walker into runners up spot whilst Christian Georgiou completed a trio of Academy products to top the poll of votes for Player of the Year in third place.
 
The other big winner on the night was scrum half Chris Pilgrim, who beat Jarad Williams to lift the Colin Cramphorn Memorial Award as the Supporters Player after polling 19% of the public vote, eight votes ahead of back rower Williams in one of the tightest contests in the awards history.
 
Lewis Boyce was named the Academy Player of the Year and was presented with his award by Yorkshire Academy Director Andy Rock. Finally Fred Burdon won the Commitment to the Community Award, which was accepted on his behalf by skipper Ryan Burrows with Burdon unable to attend the night whilst he recovers from surgery.
