Bristol Sport Stars Nominated For Host Of Awards

Stars from Bristol Sport clubs have been shortlisted for several Bristol Post Sports Awards, following a great year for sport in the city.

Individuals from Bristol Sport clubs and community organisations have been rewarded for a fantastic year with nominations across several categories at the annual awards evening, which takes place at the Marriott Hotel in Bristol on Thursday, October 22nd.

Two cousins face off in the Male Sports Personality category as Bristol Rugby's Ellis Genge and Greg Streete of Bristol Flyers are nominated alongside Lee Haskins (boxing) and Vince Murrell (Dings Crusaders).

Flyers captain Streete is nominated after an astonishing debut season for the club in the professional BBL, leading his team to the play-offs in their first season.

Bristol City manager Steve Cotterill is rightly recognised for leading City to an unprecedented double of Sky Bet League One title and Johnstone’s Paint Trophy success in 2014/15, as well as achieving a club record 99 points in guiding the club back into the Championship in his first full season in charge.

Cotterill faces competition from Bristol Rovers boss Darrell Clarke for the Coach of the Year award, while City defender Aden Flint is up against Bristol Rugby's Mitch Eadie and boxer Lee Haskins for the Professional Sports Personality accolade.

Flint scored 15 goals from central defence last term, ending the campaign as City’s second-highest scorer, whilst Eadie starred as Bristol reached the Greene King IPA Championship play-off final only to suffer last-minute heartbreak.

City and Rovers are also in direct competition to win Senior Team of the Year, having been nominated along with the City Women’s Futsal side.

Bristol City Community Trust director Amy Kington is nominated in the Outstanding Services to Sport category for her tireless work behind the scenes for the club’s charity arm.

Amy is up against Bristol Academy WFC's Kevin Hamblin and Chris Sanigar (boxing).
