Edinburgh Rugby launch Scottish Building Society Player of the Month
Edinburgh Rugby today launched a new initiative that gives supporters the opportunity to vote for the Burgh star player that impressed them the most throughout the 2021/22 season – the Scottish Building Society Player of the Month.
Sponsored and backed by Scottish Building Society, Edinburgh’s Main Club Partner will generously donate £500 to each winning player’s charity of choice, and present the player with a trophy to commemorate their success.
The club will nominate four players every month where competitive matches are played before handing the final decision to supporters to vote for their winner at www.edinburghrugby.org.
The four nominees for October’s Scottish Building Society Player of the Month will be shared later today. Supporters will have until 10am on Thursday to vote for the player that impressed them the most in the opening five rounds of the United Rugby Championship.
Head Coach Mike Blair, said: “We want to celebrate our players’ successes, so it’s great we are able to do just that with Player of the Month, and the brilliant backing of our Main Club Partner, Scottish Building Society.
“For players to not only receive an award, but a generous donation of £500 for their chosen charity, is really special and it’s great that Scottish Building Society can contribute to causes that will sit close to the hearts of our players.
“We’ve enjoyed a really promising start to the season and plenty of the guys have put their hand up to be nominated for this month’s award. We’re excited to reveal the four nominees and hope supporters get behind the initiative throughout the season.”
Paul Denton, CEO, Scottish Building Society, said: “We are proud to sponsor the Player of the Month initiative and recognise the achievements of individual players while also supporting the highly deserving charity they have selected.
“As the world’s oldest building society we remain committed to giving back and to supporting our local communities and we hope fans will get behind this initiative.”
Stay tuned to the club’s social channels as this month’s four nominees for Scottish Building Society Player of the Month are revealed and make sure to vote for the player that impressed you the most!
