At the AGM of the Kent Metropolitan Leagues Charlton Park were awarded the Spirit Of Rugby Trophy for the season 2017-18. The Leagues wished to recognise though we struggled in our two lower teams last season we still continued to put out teams to play matches although a lot of the time we were suffering heavy losses. They felt that the players and captains involved should be praised as it must have been difficult for those players week after week.

Our thanks to those at Kent Met for this award, and particularly to the captains and players who continued to play and fulfil fixtures in the true spirit of the game; this says so much about what we stand for. ‘Deeds not words’!
