The 2013 Sutton Coldfield Sports Awards were held on Friday evening at the Town Hall. A near capacity audience was there to celebrate the achievements of athletes, coaches and volunteer helpers from sporting clubs within Sutton.
The club had nominees in six of the fourteen categories, ten in total and five of them made it through to the final three in their respective categories and were present at the event. In the Veteran Sports Personality section two of the final three were Royal Sutton members.
Fantastic Friday started with Donald Brown being named Veteran Sports Personality of the Year, closely followed by the Volunteer of the Year Laurence – sorry Bunny Kyd and the very next award Coach of the Year went to Margaret and Ian Riley. Three very well deserved awards in quick succession what a fantastic few minutes!!!
Congratulations to all our members who were nominated, but extra special congratulations to Donald, Bunny and Margaret and Ian.
Many thanks to the CSPAN Committee, the awards sponsors and especially Jane Sixsmith for organising the evening.
