Sport Guildford Awards 2017

7:55am 3rd November 2017

Some of the best local sporting talent has been celebrated at the Sport Guildford Awards 2017.

Athletes, coaches, volunteers, teams and clubs in the area were recognised at the presentation ceremony last night (3 November).

Eagle Radio's Lewis Mason presented the awards at George Abbot School.

The winners were:

  • Ewbank Disability Sports Award - Anne Dickens MBE 
  • Guildford Borough Council Young Volunteer of the Year Award - Alfie Gates
  • Freedom Leisure Young Sports Team of the Year Award - Howard of Effingham Yr11 Rugby Team
  • The Robin Elsdon-Dew Young Sports Personality of the Year Award - Alicia Marie Wilson (Swimming)
  • Normandy Garage Sports Club of the Year Award - Wey Kayak Club
  • Coach of the Year Award - Ben Harmsworth
  • Eagle Radio Sports Team of the Year Award - G Force Rugby 
  • Volunteer of the Year Award - Dave Culver from Guildford Sub-Aqua Club

  • Specsavers Surrey Youth Games Young Ambassador of the Year - Cassia Taylor
  • Sports Personality of the Year - Liam Heath MBE
  • The Sport Guildford Award 2017 - Jim Falkner

On the night we caught up with Olympic kayak champion Liam Heath who picked up the Sports Personality award.

He said: "It's incredible to be recognised in this way and it's great to see so many grass roots and younger athletes developing in Surrey and Guildford."

Speaking on what has been a jam-packed year, he added: "It's been pretty flawless to be honest, I picked up my MBE, I was awarded an honorary doctorate from Surrey University, went into my season as an Olympic champion, picked up two medals from the world cups, retained my European title to make that my fifth, then went onto the world championships to win that and collect all three titles.

"Just over five weeks ago I became a father for the first time, so that is incredibly challenging but in a completely different way."

We also spoke to Alfie Gates who picked up the Young Volunteer Award.

Alfie is the media manager and press officer for Leatherhead Football Club and told Eagle he has big plans for the club: "The aim is to really get Leatherhead on the map, they've been a bit quiet over the past few years.

"My plan is to get them as Surrey's number club, which is a challenge when you've got big teams like Woking of course."

On picking up last night's award, he said: "It's amazing, I appreciate everyone's support.

"Today was an amazing day and certainly one not to forget!"
