Joe Simmonds has today added another accolade to his achievements of last season by being crowned the Exeter Chiefs Supporters’ Player of the Year for the 2019/20 season.

The 23-year-old fly-half was a clear winner amongst the club’s fanbase, having helped his club to lift both the Gallagher Premiership and Heineken Champions Cup titles.

He featured in 26 first team games last season, scoring four tries and amassing a total of 276 points.

Over 2,000 votes were cast for the seasonal award, but it was the name of Simmonds, who was added to the list of previous winners, which includes the likes of Dean Mumm, Thomas Waldrom, Don Armand, Olly Woodburn, Sam Simmonds and, the most recent winner, Santiago Cordero.

In announcing the award, Exeter Chiefs Supporters’ Club Chairman, Richard Cresswell, congratulated all the Chiefs players, coaches and support staff on their tremendous achievement.

He also thanked Tony Rowe and the whole Exeter Rugby Club Board of Directors for the very significant work they are doing to keep the club running so effectively during these very difficult times.
