Sportsperson/team of the Year

Awarded to a sportsperson or coach who has achieved excellence or who has helped others to achieve excellence in their chosen sport.

Councillor Lesley Mayes said “There are many fine sports men and women in Stowmarket. Some perform at national and international levels whilst others are successful in local and regional competitions. It is worth remembering however, that sport isn’t just about the people who compete, it is also about the managers and coaches who provide the technical and emotional support behind the scenes and who can make the difference between success and failure. Whatever their involvement in sport, we would like to hear about them.”

G Tydeman Jewellers are this year’s Sportsperson/team of the Year sponsors Les Basham for G Tydeman Jellwers said “We are delighted to be sponsoring the Sports person/Club category again this year. This is an opportunity for us to champion local sports people and clubs in our town.

At G Tydeman Jewellers we have a longstanding connection with Sport in the locality, from participation, coaching and officiating. So we feel well placed to recognise the efforts of our sporting community.  So much hard work goes into the achievements of Sports people, Coaches and the support from local clubs. Much of which can go unrecognised. This is our opportunity to acknowledge these efforts.”
