Issued on behalf of The Greene King IPA Championship by Nicol McClelland
New for the 2014/15 season, the Greene King IPA Championship has launched the inaugural 'Player of the Month' competition.
To recognise the standout individuals from across the competition, a panel of key regional and national media with vast knowledge of the Championship will submit their player of the month to public vote. A shortlist of nominees will be revealed towards the end of every month, to include an average of three rounds*.
It is then down to the supporters to visit EnglandRugby.com and vote for their overall favourite. The winning player will receive a Greene King IPA magnum as well as the honour of being named the player of the month.
Everybody who votes during the competition will be automatically entered into a free prize draw to win a day at Twickenham for them and up to nine friends. The prize includes exclusive access to the hallowed turf for a day of touch rugby in May, followed by a pitch-side BBQ.
Chris Houlton, managing director for Greene King Brewing & Brands, said: "Like other awards of its kind, the player of the month is designed to recognise some of the outstanding performances across the competition, and with the journalists' and supporters' knowledge and passion, the chosen players will no doubt be worthy winners.”
