DIDN'T THEY DO WELL! College Celebrates Sports Stars


Byline: By PHILIP TALLENTIRE

TALENTED Teesside youngsters have been rewarded for their sporting efforts.

National champions, international representatives and gold medallists all received recognition at the Middlesbrough College Sports Awards, held at Marton Country Club.

A total of 43 trophies were presented for sporting excellence in football, rugby, volleyball and gymnastics, combined with educational achievement.

Principal John Hogg said: "We are extremely proud of the students at this college. The sporting achievements just go on and on. They have been so dedicated and hard-working, they deserve all of their successes in life."

Among the winners was 19-year-old footballer Anthony Hume who gained three international caps for the England Colleges squad, scoring in all three and picking up a man of the match accolade in the process.

North of England football captain Elisha Fry, 17, also made the national team in games against Australia and Ireland, where she was captain. The Sunderland Ladies' footballer picked up Player of the Year and a special award in recognition of her international honours.

Gymnastics heroes Penny Watson and John Hutchinson, both 26, brought glory to the region when they were part of the triumphant Great Britain team in the Special Olympics in Shanghai last year.

They were presented with a special award from Middlesbrough College in recognition of their efforts.

England Under-19 stars Will Milburn, Michael Grainger and Andrew Yates flew the flag for the volleyball academy, jointly winning the special award for volleyball.

The main award of the night was the Hazel Pearson OBE Award which went to Australian A-level student Josh De Silva whose football skills have put him under scrutiny from several professional clubs.

Honorary guest, chairman of governors Hazel Pearson, said: "These students have so much talent, they bring a lot of glory to Middlesbrough College. I just can't wait to see them fulfil their potential in the new college, they are going to raise the roof!"

John Chance, Middlesbrough College's director of sport and recreation, added: "The awards are a fantastic way to celebrate the achievements of our sports students.

"It has been an excellent year for volleyball and football particularly with five of our students collecting international honours."
