Bramley Buffaloes Head Coach Mark Butterill has been named as The Co-operative Rugby League Conference National Coach of the Year.
Mark, who received his trophy at the recent RFL Awards Night, took over the coaching reigns at the West Leeds outfit at the start of the current season and has led his team to the league title and a place in next Sunday’s Grand Final against Huddersfield Rangers.
“It’s a fantastic accolade in my first year as a head coach” exclaimed Mark “but I can’t take all the plaudits as this is a real team game and it belongs to all of the players who have pulled on a Bramley shirt this season.
“It’s been a great season and we are hoping it will end in victory at Warrington at the weekend. If we do bring the trophy home then I might celebrate this award with a drink or four!” he added.
