The Sefton Sports Awards took place at the Southport Theatre and Convention Centre.

The annual event is organised by Active Sefton which is part of Sefton Council’s health and wellbeing portfolio.

It celebrates the fantastic achievements of the borough’s sports people, of all ages and abilities, as well as the volunteers, clubs, schools and other organisations that support them.

Cllr Ian Moncur, Sefton Council’s Cabinet Member Children, Schools, Families and Leisure said: “This is the 13th year the awards have been running and it never ceases to amaze me the exceptional sporting talent we have in the borough.

“It was fantastic to see so many people at the event which is an ideal way to congratulate and praise the many teams and athletes as well as all the amazing people behind the scenes such as volunteers, coaches and supporters.

“Having heard about all the winners’ incredible achievements and successes, I’m sure we will see many more young people from Sefton reaching their sporting goals in the future.

“Thanks to our generous sponsors, I am delighted that we continue to support and celebrate their excellent achievements – well done to all our winners and those nominated as well.”
