Double success for Reinach and Mitchell at End of Season dinner

Northampton Saints toasted a superb season of progress last night with the Club's annual End of Season dinner being held on the hallowed turf at Franklin's Gardens.

The glittering awards ceremony was attended by the entire Saints squad, coaching team and staff, with supporters and Club partners making up the 900-strong guestlist.

It was a night to remember for Cobus Reinach, who scooped both the Players' Player of the Season and Supporters' Player of the Season awards – the fifth player in a row to complete that special double.

The South African no.9 has enjoyed a remarkable week, as he also was named in the Gallagher Premiership's Dream Team on Wednesday for his efforts across the season and collected the league's top try-scorer prize.

But 21-year-old scrum-half Alex Mitchell was also amongst the silverware, as he received the Young Player of the Season and Try of the Season gongs, with his score against Clermont Auvergne in France voted the best try of the campaign.

Meanwhile Rory Hutchinson was called on stage to collect the Breakthrough Player of the Season award for his standout performances since the turn of the year.

Several players were awarded their Club caps for notching up 50, 100 and 200 appearances for Northampton Saints, while BBC Radio Northampton's Graham McKechnie was named Clubman of the Year to recognise his exceptional ongoing research into the Club's history.
