Coaches Player went to a lady that ended up playing in a position she didn’t expect for the whole season.

The very last award to report on is the Delaney Staples award. It was created at the end of the old Romans Ladies team as an ode to previous GM’s Amanda Staples & Megan Delaney and awarded to Meg at the end of 2018 by the new Bears GM Arran Harrison.
This year Arran awarded it to a Bear for their work on the committee and behind the scenes this year, which was a massive help in getting the new club off the ground and creating the brand that is the Bears. It was awarded to Amanda Staples!
