EAST Hampshire’s finest sporting talent gathered together in honour of local stars.

The District Council’s annual sports awards recognised the men and women who have excelled against the odds, won the big prizes or dedicated themselves to their club and their community.

Host Fred Dinenage handed out awards covering every sporting angle – from sportsmen of the year to best junior school team.

The winners were drawn from across the district and they collected the awards in front of their fellow nominees at The Studio, in The Petersfield School.

East Hampshire District Council Chairman Cllr Ken Carter said: ‘These awards show how much sporting talent we have in East Hampshire.

‘With the Olympics approaching fast there’s no better time to remind ourselves of what can be achieved with the right combination of talent and hard work, volunteers should also be recognised and these awards also give them their moment to shine.’
