Held recently at Thainstone House Hotel, Aberdeenshire Clubsport SCIO were absolutely delighted to host their annual sports awards evening in association with the new headline sponsor Crown Motors. The only event of its kind within Aberdeenshire, showcasing the hard work and dedication of the athletes, coaches and volunteers here in the northeast.

The standard of nominations is always quite staggering, with many national, European and World champions in the mix. With new athletes shining through and new sports being highlighted it is very encouraging for sport in the area.

13 category winners were announced on the night which included 2 new categories Young Coach and Young Volunteer highlighting the importance of the contribution to sport in the area from those U18.

Aberdeenshire Clubsport have been delighted to work with existing partners but are also really encouraged and equally delighted to welcome new partners many of whom were in attendance on the night: Crown Motors, John Bell Pipeline, RenQuip, Inverurie Youth Sports Foundation, Aberdeenshire Council, CRC Evans, GPH Builders Merchants, Masson Glennie, Steveweld, Satori Martial Arts Grampian and Scottish Clubsport.

Jackie Smith Chair of Aberdeenshire Clubsport said “Partnership working is at the heart of what we do and we definitely could not put on such an important event highlighting the sporting talent right across Aberdeenshire without the funding support from local companies. A massive thank you to everyone involved."

The audience was also treated to a Q&A session led by MC Ian Thain with two local athletes. Kim Beattie with a spectacular career in Double Mini Trampoline just returned from winning a European gold medal and Jade Edwards about her experience as one of the youngest competitors to take part in her first international event – the ISA World Para Surfing Championships.

A £500 Talent Fund was also presented on the evening in association with Mitchell Scott and No. 8 to a young local boxer in support of his National representation.

Jackie said "I always find it very humbling being in a room surrounded by so many people dedicated to sport locally. Huge congratulations once again to all the winners. You are each a tremendous credit to your chosen sports."
