Sam lands Foresters honours
SAM Wilkes capped off a fantastic season by taking home two gongs at Cinderford's annual dinner and awards evening.
The hooker has recently returned from East Africa having won a call up for England Counties' three-match tour.
After overcoming a potentially fatal bout of cellulitis back in September, Wilkes fought his way back to fitness and into the Dockham Road side's first team.
That battling spirit earned him the Supporters Club Player of the Year and Front Row Forward of the Year awards with the team showing just as much fight to overcome a slow start to finish eighth in National One.
