Seaford had their Annual Sports Awards Dinner to celebrate the achievements and successes of those pupils that have represented the college in our major sports. Just over 100 pupils and staff were present on the evening.
Beginning with welcome drinks outside, sports kits were abandoned in place of black-tie for the evening!
As guests were seated for their meal, they discovered a sporting quiz at their table, with questions to answer as they ate. Later in the evening the games intensified with each table taking it in turns to bounce a tennis ball into a bucket – much harder than it looked! Standing behind a line, they were allowed one bounce onto the floor and into the bucket. Despite being an evening showcasing Seaford’s sporting talent, most missed entirely!
Guests were able to watch a photo montage playing throughout the night showcasing the last year, and there was also a montage video showcasing footage of matches throughout the year. A wonderful evening of Sport.
Speeches were given by Liam Doubler, Director of Sport and Co-Curricular, as well as Seaford’s Head Girl, Holly Gyles, and Head Boy, Nico Caines who recapped on the sporting year going through all the teams achievements.
Then came to the bit everyone was waiting for – the awards, presented by John Green, Headmaster.
Sportswoman of the year was presented to Isobel Porter
Sportsman of the year was presented to Charlie Norton
Services to Seaford Sport was awarded to Cally Nugent
Bill Cuthbertson ‘Cubby Cup’ was awarded to Nico Caines
What is always striking at our awards dinners is how humble our sports men and women are. All our winners were shocked to have won and didn’t want to sing their own praises, seeing themselves as simply part of a team. Cally Nugent, winner of Services to Seaford Sport said “I was really shocked. I did not think I’d get that”.
It was a superb evening and highlighted the direction of Seaford Sport. 2017/2018 has been another impressive year with more pupils representing Seaford Sport and more achievement at all levels. All staff have been exceptional, providing detailed feedback to pupils and always going above and beyond to improve their players as both individuals and as a team. Well done all for everything you have achieved this academic year.
