Wandsworth's sporting stars have been recognised for their hard work and dedication over the past year.

The Active Wandsworth Awards looked back on the 2018 sporting year and celebrated sporting individuals, clubs, volunteers and coaches.

Hosted by Sky Sports News presenter and avid Sheffield Wednesday fan, David Garrido, there were dozens of nominations to go through, with some worthy winners coming out on top.

It was England rugby prop and former Battersea Ironsides RFC player Kyle Sinckler who scooped the 'sports person of the year award' after he cemented a place in the national side.

Putney High School pupil Molly Lee collected the 'junior sports person of the year award' following her success at the European and African Water-Skiing Championships.

Wandsworth Council’s cabinet member for community services and open spaces, Steffi Sutters, said: " Our borough is lucky to have such talented sports men and women.

"We owe so much to the encouragement and time given by their coaches, clubs and others who work really hard to make them the best that they can be.

"Collectively they contribute so much to sport and physical activity in Wandsworth.

“It was a real pleasure to be at the awards, to recognise their hard work and dedication, to hear their stories and to help celebrate their achievements."

The people and organisations that encourage people into activity were also recognised. Leonard Cheshire at Randall Close won the 'physical activity project of the year award' for their tailored programmes for people unable to access mainstream sporting activities or who need one-to-one sessions.

Volunteers also had their time to shine.

The work of Simon Haspel at Wayfarers Hockey Club received a special recognition for 'outstanding contribution to sport and physical activity' and the Para Team at Burntwood School won the mayor’s award for its work making sport accessible to all.
