2013 Lancashire Sports Awards 2013 Lancashire Sports Awards

Thornton Sports proudly sponsor the 2013 Lancashire Sports Awards

Our team were honoured to be involved in the Lancashire Sports Awards which took place on Friday 11th October in Blackpool.

Organised by Lancashire Sport Partnership, the awards are the largest annual celebration of amateur sport in the County, and were attended by over 350 people. Now in their 12th year, the awards pay tribute to those, young and old, that show dedication to perform at the highest level or those who work tirelessly to support individuals or clubs week in, week out, for the love of sport.

The ‘Lifetime Achievement Award’ sponsored by Thornton Sports, was presented to Graham Lawton of Fylde Cricket Club by David Saxby. Graham was selected to receive the award due to his dedication to the club over the last 50 years, and also the impressive achievements of both Graham and the club over that period.

David Saxby comments,

“It’s been an absolute pleasure to be involved in this high profile event. The commitment and dedication of the nominees is astounding, and I’m sure it will have been a very special night for the award winners.

Followers of Thornton Sports may notice that this is the second Sports Awards we have sponsored in less than a month, having supported the Borough of Hyndburn’s Sports Awards back in September. As a leading UK sports surfacing contractor we feel it is important for us to support and encourage sports participation at the community level in our local area.”
