Rutherglen Reformer - - Front Page - Kenny Smith

Cam­bus­lang and Ruther­glen Sports Coun­cil have this week launched their an­nual sports per­former and team of the year awards for suc­cesses in 2014.

And they are ask­ing Re­former read­ers to help by nom­i­nat­ing tal­ented sports in­di­vid­u­als and clubs for con­sid­er­a­tion for this year’s awards.

Can­di­dates who have made no­table sport­ing achieve­ments dur­ing the year are el­i­gi­ble for nom­i­na­tion in the var­i­ous cat­e­gories.

This year’s cat­e­gories will in­clude the fol­low­ing:

Adult Sports Per­former of the Year (Male); Adult Sports Per­former of the Year (Fe­male); Adult Sports Per­former of the Year (Se­nior); Ju­nior Sports Per­former of the Year (Male); Ju­nior Sports Per­former of the Year (Fe­male); Se­nior Team of the Year; Ju­nior Team of the Year; Coach of the Year; and Ser­vices to Sport Award.

Sports coun­cil chair Liz Ar­buckle said: “The sports per­former awards are a chance for peo­ple in the Cam­bus­lang and Ruther­glen ar­eas to have their per­for­mances and achieve­ments recog­nised at a lo­cal level.

“There are a lot of sports peo­ple in the town who put in a lot of hard work, for lit­tle or no re­ward, and we like to recog­nise and ac­knowl­edge what they have done for their sport.

“Over the years we’ve had win­ners rep­re­sent­ing a va­ri­ety of sports, which goes to show the depth and va­ri­ety of the tal­ent we have here.”

Read­ers who know of in­di­vid­u­als who have won sports ti­tles or sil­ver and bronze medals at West of Scot­land, na­tional, United King­dom or at in­ter­na­tional level should nom­i­nate ap­pro­pri­ate in­di­vid­u­als.

In ad­di­tion, res­i­dents of the area who have gained in­ter­na­tional hon­ours dur­ing the year 2013 should be nom­i­nated for con­sid­er­a­tion in the var­i­ous cat­e­gories.

In ad­di­tion to the in­di­vid­ual and team per­for­mance awards, the sports coun­cil would like nom­i­na­tions for coaches who have con­trib­uted to the suc­cess of tal­ented sports per­form­ers and in­di­vid­u­als who have spent over 25 years in an ac­tive role within a sports club en­vi­ron­ment.

Cam­bus­lang Rugby Club cap­tain James McLaren was named Cam­bus­lang and Ruther­glen Sports Coun­cil’s top adult sports per­former for achieve­ments in 2013.

For fur­ther in­for­ma­tion on the awards, or to re­ceive a nom­i­na­tion form, con­tact Mar­ion Wother­spoon at South La­nark­shire Leisure on 01698 476108.
