Students at Ormiston Sudbury Academy receive awards for hard work
Posted: 27 May 2016
Three of Sudbury’s promising football players receive awards for their achievements at an end of season ceremony at AFC Sudbury's Wardale Williams Stadium, where the academy is based.
The academy was launched in 2014, in partnership with the Ormiston Sudbury Academy and provides 16-18 year olds with nationally recognised qualifications in both the sporting and academic sectors. The academy operates on a full-time basis and currently offers two year courses for up to 30 people.
During the ceremony Jordan Blackwell.18, of Bures, was presented with the Outstanding Achievement Award. Tyler French, 17, of Long Melford, received the Player's Player Award and Ryan McNicholas, 17, of Assington was named Young Player of the Year.
Amanda Skinner, Practice Manager at opticians Wardale Williams said:
"As the club's main sponsor we were very proud to present the awards and to support the academy, which we feel is a great local asset. The academy helps young people to gain recognised qualifications putting them on the right path to meaningful careers. I would like to congratulate not only the award winners but everybody involved in the academy."
