INVERCLYDE PERSONALITY SPORTS AWARDS SHINE AGAIN (MAY 2022)




There was a great turnout for the Inverclyde Sports Awards gala dinner where trophies for eight award categories were won by local sportspeople, plus three new grants under the Sports Awards grant scheme were announced to Jim Lyon for tennis, Sean Fischer-Keogh for cricket and Sandra Watters for bowling.

For the organisers, Chris Jewell said, ‘it was so good to be back with these awards in their Greenock Town Hall setting where the local sporting community could gather again for this special evening. As well as the awards themselves, so well hosted by presenters Amber Zoe and Mike McLean, we heard from football commentator and pundit Chick Young and there was great music from the Laurettes plus some fun and very clever table magic during an excellent meal from ICE Catering and Events. We also sampled the atmosphere surrounding the forthcoming Commonwealth Games which take place in Birmingham in July.

‘Very well done to all the winners and finalists, and thanks to all who attended. We must also thank our sponsors Inverclyde Council, Inverclyde Leisure, sportscotland, West College Scotland, Amazon Gourock, Reid Mackellar, Auto-Tec Port Glasgow and New Horizons Marketing for making the evening and the awards possible. And because of these sponsors and the responses from the auction and raffle, we will be able to make more grants available to aspiring individual local sports people young and older. The grant application form is available at www.inverclydesportspersonality.com/grantsscheme

‘2022 sporting activities have returned with a bang and already we are greatly looking forward to the 2022 awards taking place in early 2023.’
