Rising stars awarded

A glitzy and glamorous awards night celebrated the achievements of our rising sports stars.

The St Lawrence Academy’s Sports Presentation Evening was given a new format thanks to generous sponsors and included guest appearances by Scunthorpe United players.


Principal Mike Adnitt thanked the considerable efforts of the PE department for organising the evening.

“It was a wonderful event which did justice to the considerable achievements of our students over the past sporting year,” Mr Adnitt said.

“I want to congratulate all the nominees for the range of awards. The academy has some star performers, both in individual and team events.”

One of the organisers, PE teacher Ryan Oates, thanked everybody involved for making the evening such a “great success”.

He said: “I’d particularly like to thank the various sponsors who enabled us to create a very glamourous, enjoyable and special evening for our young people and to help fund brand new trophies for the first time in more than 10 years.

“We are always keen to recognise and champion the young talent we have here at the Academy and the evening produced wonderful memories for those present and receiving awards.”
