ENGLAND ace Matt Kvesic brought the curtain down on his Warriors career by scooping a prestigious double at last night’s end-of-season awards ceremony.

The academy-produced openside flanker, who has opted to leave Worcester and join local rivals Gloucester for next term, was named player-of-the-season and players’ player-of-the-season.

Kvesic, this week named in the England squad for the summer tour to Argentina, has been head and shoulders the best player to pull on a Worcester jersey this term and his efforts were rewarded with the two top gongs.

Tthe Warrior of the year award – given to the rugby staff member that has, through his commitment to the club, gained total respect for how he conducts himself on and off the field – was won for the second successive season by James Percival, who has captained the club for most of the campaign.

Percival was also a winner in the community award section as he and retiring scrum-half Shaun Perry were declared joint winners.

Perry, who also won the award last season, picked up the top prize less than 24 hours after being named Aviva community player-of-the-season at the Premiership awards in London for his work on a number of community projects.

The young player-of-the-year trophy was won by talented back Ben Howard, who has this season broke into the first team at Sixways and featured in the final two Premiership games.
