Jonny Lomax has taken home three awards including the coveted Saints Player of the Year for 2019 at tonight’s awards dinner at the Totally Wicked Stadium.
Lomax, who has enjoyed an impressive season to date, walked away with the main prize on the night which is chosen by Saints head coach Justin Holbrook and members of his coaching team.
The 29-year old, has had a season to remember personally scoring 18 tries in 28 appearances and laying on a further 21 scores for his Saints teammates who also recognised his contribution as they voted him the 2019 Players’ Player of the Year.
The St.Helens fans also voted Lomax as their Members Player of the Year for 2019 as our stand off took home the three main awards on the night.
Lomax beat off competition from fellow fan favourite Lachlan Coote who has had a stellar season to date in his debut season at the Saints, closely followed by Luke Thompson and Tommy Makinson who finished in third and fourth respectively.
Meanwhile, Matty Lees was rewarded for a hardworking and impressive season as he took home the Young Player of the Year Award.
The 21-year old has been one of the stand-out performers in the forwards for Holbrook’s side this year, and although he will unfortunately not play a part in the season finale due to injury, his performances have not been forgotten.
Regan Grace won the 2019 Try of the Season award after fans voted his dazzling Round 10 try against Warrington back in April as their winner.
Jodie Cunningham took home two awards on the night winning Women’s Player of the Year as well as the Chairman’s Award recognising her contribution to growing the women’s game across the country. She will be hoping to help lead the Saints Women to Grand Final success later this season.
Academy captain Sam Royle won the Academy Player of the Year Award after he has lead his side to the Grand Final, whilst Taylor Pemberton took home the U16s Player of the Year award as he impressed both for Saints and for England.
Elsewhere, LDRL captain Mike Thompson took home the LDRL Player of the Year award for his work with people who have varied levels of ability and for the value he brings as an all-round rugby player and leader.
