Sporting stars of Essex gather for the Essex Sports Awards
SPORTS stars from across Essex were awarded accolades at the prestigious 2009 Essex Sports Awards held at the Waterfront in Chelmsford on November 11, 2009. Now in its fourth year, the awards are staged by sportessex and are an opportunity to reward the people who participate, support and invest personally in sport development.
Ten awards were up for grabs with three finalists shortlisted in each category selected from hundreds of nominations from a variety of sports. Among the guests were Essex cricket coach Paul Grayson and England rugby World Cup winner Jason Leonard. Last years Sports Personality winner and Olympic fencer, Alex OConnell, was on hand to present the award to this years winner, Land Fourie.
