Scarborough’s motorsport star Michael Brown and Whitby-based Sunderland & England Women striker Beth Mead swooped to take the top senior awards at tonight’s Scarborough & District Sports Council Awards.
Brown just pipped Scarborough RUFC’s South African man mountain Nino Cutino to the Top Male Achiever Award, while Mead managed to stave off competition from Scarborough Athletics Club’s Sue Haslam to secure the female equivalent.
The Coach of the Year Award was collected by bowls supremo Mike Preston, who just beat off Scarborough Pirates coach Adam Lee into the runners-up spot, while Lee saw his side narrowly miss out on the Top Playing Team Senior Award to the Kingfishers Swimming Club’s Channel Relay Team.
