The Wigan Healthy Stadia and Sports Club Network were delighted to be in attendance at this years ‘Believe Sports Awards’ which took place at the DW Stadium on September 12th, recognising the contributions of many local sports clubs and their volunteers.
Nearly 400 people gathered at the DW Stadium for the special event, which saw 97 nominations made over nine categories.
Andy Wiggans, Chair of Trustees at leisure and culture provider WLCT, which organises the event, said: “The awards recognise those outstanding individuals and teams who strive to be the best in their sport, as well as those volunteers who go the extra mile to support talent in the borough. Well done to everyone who was nominated this year and to all those who work hard to develop sport across Wigan and Leigh.”
Two of our Network clubs received awards on the night including Leigh Genesis Football Club who won ‘Club of the Year’ and Leigh Judo who won “The Martin Lynn Special Contribution to School Sport’. Also presented on the night was an award to Wigan Cosmos FC in recognition for achieving the Wigan Borough Healthy Stadia and Sports Club Network status and their outstanding work this year.
