SAFFRON Walden Judo Club has held its annual awards evening and it turned out to be a fantastic night for all the young members and their parents.

Coaches Michelle Camp and Chris Meeks are delighted with the way 2010 shaped up and are looking forward to another successful year in 2011.

They said: “Saffron Walden Judo Club has had another amazing year and is going from strength to strength.

“We have ended the year in fine style at the Eastern Area Championships collecting one gold medal, won by Victoria Kerr, together with three silvers and one bronze medal.

“All our players work extremely hard and it is great to see their efforts pay off – here’s to 2011.”

The main two winners on the night were Victoria Kerr, who bagged Female Player of the Year, and James Mckenzie, who won the Male Player of the Year.

Joshua Natham took the Novice Player of the Year award, with the Coaches award going to Tristan Harris. The Spirit of Judo award was won by Harley Camp.

A new award was introduced this year, the Players Player of the Year with the first recipient being Elliot Murray. This was a very close result, so much so, that Ross McKenzie was awarded a runners-up Players Player of the Year trophy.

Additionally, Connor Cladingboel was presented with the December ‘Jack Petchey’ award.
