A double for London Irish at the Local Sports Awards
We had two winners at the Surrey Local Sports Awards 2016
London Irish were double winners last night at the Spelthorne Sports Awards 2016. The Spelthorne Sports Awards, a celebration of sport in Spelthorne organised by Spelthorne Borough Council and Spelthorne Sports Council, are held in October each year to celebrate the achievements of those who have excelled at sport; be it as a coach, team player or an individual.
The Sports Team of the Year award was won our senior team, the Wild Geese, for their tremendous season last year culminating in winning National League 3 SE. Seen here receiving their award from Invictus Games Medal Winner Nerys Pearce
The Young Volunteer of the Year award went to Rebecca Charles from our Ladies and Girls Sections in recognition of the huge contribution she made to the running of the club last year. Seen here receiving her award.

As a result of their success, both the Wild Geese and Rebecca have now been put forward by Spelthorne as nominees for the annual Surrey Sports Awards.
