RUGBY player Jonathan Davies has been named Sports Personality of the Year at this year’s award ceremony.

Winners from across the county were honoured for their achievements at Ffrwnes Theatre on Friday night.

The event, organised by Carmarthenshire County Council’s sport and leisure team, recognises and rewards people of all ages and abilities who contribute to sport in Carmarthenshire.
