CLUB NEWS: Hellingly celebrate enjoyable 2016
Hellingly Lions staged their AGM and awards evening on 25th November, after an enjoyable season in 2016.
At the start of the year, the club had made the winter switch, moving from South and South Wales across to the Eastern region. It was a decision that everybody at the club had felt was a good move.
Finishing the season 4th in the table, just 6 points behind champions Ipswich Eagles (the only team to defeat Hellingly at home), and with a good amount of juniors appearing for the club at the Youth and Junior League, were a couple of things highlighted as good progression by chairman Barry Carpenter, before the awards were given out.
Off track, the club had secured a couple of sizeable grants, which had allowed new equipment to be purchased. Chairman of Hailsham Active, Steve Wennington, presented the awards on behalf of sponsors Winning Look.
Winners on the night were:
- Rider of the Year – Martyn Hollebon
- Riders Rider of the Year – Jesse Moore
- Most Improved Rider – Jamie Cox
- Clubman of the Year – Jamie Morley and Percy Cox
Flowers were presented on behalf of the club to thank Val Cox, Michelle Rideout, Sonia Hollebon, Lorraine Maris and Gill Hollebon for their help throughout this last year.
