Newcastle Falcons full-back Ben Redshaw won a Rising Star Award at the recent Sport Newcastle dinner.

The 18-year-old joined the Falcons’ academy at the age of 14, with the Leeds-born back attending Sedbergh School prior to the culmination of his studies in the summer.

Captaining England U18s and representing England U19s a year young, Redshaw was this season named in England U20s’ Elite Player Squad.

The Yorkshireman made his first team debut for the Falcons and has already appeared in Gallagher Premiership action as well as being invited out to train with England’s Rugby World Cup squad during this year’s tournament in France.

Newcastle Falcons’ head of academy James Ponton was on hand at Newcastle Civic Centre for the presentation.

Well done Ben, on behalf of everybody at the club!
