Four of the regional clubs were in attendance at the event (Middlesbrough, Hull, Sunderland and Newcastle) and there were a total of 20 nominations for the following awards: Coach of the Year, Team Achievement, Young Sports Achievement, Unsung Hero, Young Club Champion and Special Achievement. Each club could nominate one person per award and the winners and runners up were as follows:
Team Achievement: Wearside Wildcats, Sunderland
Unsung Hero: Anjela Lillystone, Middlesborough & Pauline Hardy, Hull.
The evening celebrations were thoroughly enjoyed by those in attendance, and the two keynote speakers, Garry Pallister (ex- Manchester United and Middlesbrough footballer) and Fab Flournoy of the Newcastle Eagles Basketball team, shared some inspirational speeches and stories with the audience.
Thanks to those who attended and whose hard work was recognised over the course of the evening. Congratulations to our netballing winners, and we hope that this is the first of many celebratory events which recognise the success of those in the region.
