Player of the Season is voted for by URSC members in May. The winning Player receives a magnificent bronze trophy designed and created by local artist Bob Sloan.

 

For the past 11 years the winner has also received a designer watch from our loyal sponsors, McNeillys Jewellers of Belfast and Newry. URSC is grateful to McNeillys for their generous support over these years.

 

From this season though, the Player of the Season Award will be sponsored by Gardiner Brothers Jewellers of Waring Street, Belfast. Additionally from this season, not only will the Player of the Season receive a superb Ernest Borel Swiss watch courtesy of Gardiners, but as a fantastic bonus for URSC members, all those voting for the winning player will be entered into a draw and one lucky member will also win an Ernest Borel watch courtesy of Gardiners!

Not one watch, but TWO – one for the Player of the Season and one for a lucky URSC member who votes for the winner!

Speaking on behalf of Gardiner Brothers Jewellers, Director Iain Warke (himself an Ulster Rugby season ticket holder) stated, Gardiner Brothers are delighted to be able to support the Ulster Rugby Supporters’ Club and the work they do.  We have been involved with Ulster Rugby for many years, most recently in the complete refurbishment of the Schools Rugby Cup and we are now proud, in our 80th year, to be able to extend this involvement to the Supporters’ Club. We will be providing two world renowned Ernest Borel wrist watches for both the Player of the Year and a very lucky Supporters Club member.  Like Gardiner Brothers, Ernest Borel have been supplying the finest quality products for many years, earning an envied reputation for quality, value and service.”

In response, URSC Chairman Jonathan Bill commented, I am very grateful to Gardiner Brothers for helping to reinforce the view that the Ulster Rugby Supporters Club Player of the Season is the premier annual award for Ulster Rugby players – the one the players themselves most want to win. I am particularly pleased that URSC is being partnered by a local company who have forged strong links with the local rugby scene over many years. With a prestige watch for the Player of the Season and a URSC member, this literally is a win-win situation thanks to Gardiner Brothers!”

Many readers may be aware that in years gone by, Gardiner Brothers had a strict trade card entry policy due to their heritage as a wholesale Jeweller.   In more recent times however, due to changing shopping patterns, that policy has been relaxed, but their pricing policy has remained the same, allowing you to purchase a complete range of products at wholesale prices which are between 30% and 50% less than the manufacturer’s suggested selling price.
