Trimble was named Ulster's Player of the Year in recognition for his contribution to the team this season as well as his stellar performances for Ireland during the Six Nations.

In addition to the main award, the Coleraine man also scooped the Ulster rugby writers and supporters awards.

Ulster captain Johan Muller, who is set to retire and return to South Africa at the end of the season, received the Ulster Rugby Personality of the year award, while Paddy Jackson was named young player of the year.

Ulster still have the chance of claiming some silverware this season, having qualified for the PRO-12 semi-finals.

Mark Anscombe's side face Munster in their final game of the regular season, and look likely to face Leinster at the RDS in their semi-final game later this month.
