WITH winners aged from 11 to 75, The Pride of Tameside Sports Awards this year proved you can never be too young or old to shine in sport.
Ashes winning England cricket captain Michael Vaughan OBE was guest speaker at the glittering event held at Dukinfield Town Hall on Friday 23 September, which recognised sporting achievements from around the borough.
 
 
 
There were more nominations than ever before this year and they were of such a high quality that the judges had their work cut out deciding winners for the seven categories.
 
 
The finalists represented a wide range of sports and ages – the youngstest winner being Sports Achiever of the Year Eve Loughman, a world champion kickboxer and the oldest being Unsung Hero of the Year Peter Brocklehurst, who has devoted over 60 years to pioneering cycling in the borough.
