DARNALL United Volleyball Club hosted a glittering awards banquet at the Santa Lodge in Tugela recently, honouring players and officials who excelled in the 2017 season.

Guests of honour at the awards function, Roy Dhaver and Dr J.S. Dhaver, congratulated the players and management of Darnall Volleyball Club and urged the officials to get more youth involved in the game in the new season.

President of KwaDukuza Volleyball Association (KDVA) Isaac Abraham said: “On behalf of the officials of KDVA, may I take this opportunity to congratulate Darnall on its success on the volleyball courts.

“Darnall’s success must be attributed to the hardworking officials Vinesh Geanballey and Samuel Moonsamy, who made personal sacrifices for the upliftment of the club.”

Abraham added that the officials and players must not be despondent when players leave the club in their quest to play indoor volleyball in Tongaat, instead, they [the officials and players] must be proud that they are responsible for developing these players.

He heaped praise upon Sheldon “Punch” Milligan of Darnall who was voted the KDVA attacker of the year and who won the prestigious player of the year award.

Milligan was over the moon after he received his awards at Saturday’s banquet.

Darnall is indebted to its sponsor, Trevor Snivasen (CEO of Cordilite), for his generous sponsorship over the past three years.

Alvin Moonsamy was adjudged the most valuable player with Desmond Chetty scooping the setter of the year award.

Darnall Volleyball Club was a model of consistency in 2017, with its team scooping the prestigious Natdale Insulating Services KDVA Division One league title and it was crowned club of the year for the second year in succession. The Darnall team are sure to start favourites for a hat-trick of titles when the league resumes next month.
