Susan Wins Northamptonshire Sportswoman of the Year 2018

Congratulations to Susan Corless of Northampton Archery Club for becoming Northamptonshire Local Sportswoman of the Year 2018. She has won the award for the second year running. This follows on from winning the award for Northampton Local Sportswoman of the Year just last month.

Well done also to Jack Sharpe from Wellingborough OAC, who was shortlisted for Disabled Sportsperson of the Year. Unfortunately he didn’t win the overall award, but it’s really great to have had two county archers in the running for these local awards.

The programme for the event can be found here: 2018 Northamptonshire Sports Awards. Susan’s category is on page 16 and Jack’s is on page 10.
