IT HAS been an incredible year for Saints demonstrated by the amount of silverware adorning the trophy cabinet at the Totally Wicked Stadium.

The club has seen both the men’s and women’s teams enjoy success in 2021. 
The men won a third successive Super League title as they defeated Catalans Dragons 12-10 in a tense Grand Final tussle at Old Trafford in October.

The win also signified the club’s first domestic double since 2006 after they had won the Challenge Cup at Wembley against Castleford, ending a 13-year wait to lift the famous trophy.

Meanwhile, the women’s team enjoyed a clean sweep by winning the treble of the Challenge Cup, Super League and League Leaders’ Trophy.
Saints head coach Kristian Woolf and women’s captain Jodie Cunningham went up on stage to collect the Special Achievement award from Toast cafe owner Lisa Bullman. 

Kristian said: “It has been a great season, it’s been tough as every season is. We’re very proud to represent the club we do.

“They’re an outstanding group of men, led by guys like James Roby, the way he carries himself and competes every week, he’s exceptional to be involved with. The reason they get the a success they do is they’re very proud to represent the club.

“Everybody’s done it tough through Covid.

“We’ve got a special group of men and they’re a really hungry group and that’s a special thing to have.”

Jodie added: “There’s a winning culture at the club, it’s got a lot of history and it’s got that winning history, the standards are so high and the coaching staff are incredible and bring the best out of you, it’s an amazing club to be part of."

After listening to many of the stories from the night, both agreed that it was “privilege to be in the same room as the people who were shortlisted”.

Kristian added: “We are very much aware of how intertwined the the community is with the club and vice versa.”
