Championships sponsor Kingstone Press has named Steven Tiffen as Hemel Stags King of the Fans – a season-long hunt to find the best rugby league Championships supporters.

Steven, from Adeyfield, was nominated for his dedication to supporting the team home and away, as well as his enthusiastic match day chants.

On hearing the good news, Steven said: “It’s a great competition and I’m chuffed that I’ve won.

“What a fantastic end to a successful first season playing in the Championships.

“Reaching the playoffs has been unbelievable, our coach and the team have worked their socks off.”

As part of his prize, Steven received a crate of cider and a family ticket to Championships Finals Day to fly the flag for the Stags.

Gordon Johncox, Kingstone Press Cider managing director, said: “We are thrilled to name Steven as Hemel Stags King of the Fans – he truly deserves the title.

“We were overwhelmed with the response to the competition which has shown the passion and commitment the fans have for their clubs.

“It has been a perfect way to celebrate the Championships and importantly reward those loyal fans who come out week after week to support their clubs.”
