West Park Leeds RFC  - the club that recently hosted the full England side for a training session - has been awarded the RFU's Club Accreditation.

This means the club - which boasts England coach Stuart Lancaster as a member - also achieves Sport England Clubmark.

Lancaster’s son Dan also plays for the Under 12s at the North Leeds club, which has some of the best facilities outside the Premiership and Championship.

Having served their local community for 54 years, the club has certainly worked hard for this recognition.

Everyone in the Clubmark team would like to send their congratulations to Bradley Wiggins who was voted 2012 BBC Sports Personality of the Year.

 The 32-year-old cyclist claimed Olympic time trial gold in the summer just a month after becoming the first Briton to win the Tour de France.

He scooped the BBC prize ahead of Jessica Ennis (runner-up) and Andy Murray (third place) after a public vote.

"To be ahead of Jess and Andy, it's probably my greatest sporting achievement," he told the BBC Sport website.
