Sports Awards a great success

An array of awards were handed out to New College Pontefract students at this year’s Sports Awards ball.

The event, hosted by the A1 Football Factory in Pontefract, saw students winning prizes for sports team of the year, including rugby, football and netball. Sports personality of the year went to Lois Whitaker and Coach of the Year went to Danny Milnes, who coaches the female football team.

Tom Shepherd, New College Head of Sport, said: “The Sports Awards was a great success once again, both students and staff thoroughly enjoyed the evening and it’s great to see the students get recognition for their hard work over the year. The service by all staff on the night was professional, and special thanks should go to the A1 team for hosting the event. The venue was perfect.”
