Chris Wearmouth has just posted this on the official Coventry website:

Ryan Burrows has been voted as the 2019/20 Coventry Rugby Supporters Player of the Season.

A new face at the start of the season, Burrows won both the acclaim and respect of the Coventry Rugby faithful with a string of powerful performances, leading the team from the front and with his red scrum cap to the fore.

In all Burrows made 20 appearances from the club’s 22 matches with just three of those as replacement and was man of the match on a number of occasions.

Here are just some of the comments received by the Coventry Rugby Supporters Club during the voting process:

‘Leadership, staying calm, dynamic ball carrying ability, talking to players during the difficult periods in a game, seeking clarification from referees and leading by example. Excellent signing’

‘One of the most outstanding signings for a very long time’

‘Class act and a consistently outstanding performer and competitor’

‘Standout ball carrier, a natural leader, can always re-energise the scrum’

Burrows will be awarded the Blenkinsopp Trophy later in the year.

In the accompanying interview on the Coventry Rugby Facebook page, Ryan also confirms he will be remaining at the BPA next season, 2020/21.

The Coventry Rugby Supporters Club has entrenched its relationship with the club this year, sponsoring the Under-18s, arranging coach travel to away games and backing the crowdfunder.

To think some cast doubts about him as a signing after we played against him at Doncaster last season?

A truly well earned award from supporters.
Would be great to see him wearing the Cov Blue & White, so everything crossed for that

He has lead by example this season, and has surely been a great role model for the younger 1st team squad members, the development squad and the U18's for this season and for the next couple of years at least.
