Key words of praise underpinned the awards evening of the Sports Campus of the College of West Anglia at Lynnsport on Wednesday.

They featured in praise for the students by staff; praise for the staff by students and praise for both by college principal David Pomfret.

There was a large turnout for the presentation of individual and team awards; three guest speakers and two new names added to the Hall of Fame.

The three guest speakers were Dr Lee Smith, currently a research cientist at the University of Central London, Gavin Caney, sports journalist at the Eastern Daily Press at Lynn, and Patrick Manifold, professional basketball player for Glasgow Rocks.

Tommy Goode, programme manager at the Sports Campus, said the event was “a great night which celebrated our students’ success over the last year.”

He said the year had seen an exceptional performance by students and staff at the sports campus, excelling in many sports, helping disabled people and supporting charity.

Joining the CWA Sports Campus Hall of Fame were Caney and Yaba Afful-Logotse who is now a personal trainer.
