Former Wheelchair Rugby Champion Presents Tollbar Sports Awards

Former England Wheelchair Rugby League Champion Martin Norris presents the Victor Ludorum Trophy to Tollbar Academy Sports Awards winner Rebecca Boyd.


Indus House Team Captain Rebecca Boyd won the prestigious Victor Ludorum Trophy at the Tollbar Academy Sports Awards 2019. Just two weeks earlier Rebecca led her House to victory at the annual Sports Day at King George V Stadium.

The Victor Ludorum Trophy is presented to the student who the P.E. teachers believe is the most talented sportsperson and has demonstrated the greatest commitment to Academy sports and beyond.

"I am thrilled," she said.

Former Captain of England 7s Wheelchair Rugby League, Martin Norris, was guest of honour at the awards evening and handed out trophies to the winners. Martin was a World Cup winner in 2008 and finalist in 2013.

More than 60 awards were presented on the night for Achievement in Sport, Most Improved Performers, Overall Sports Performers, Sports Day Winners and Team of The Year. This was presented to the Under-15 Girls Futsal Team, who this year got to the final of the FA Youth Competition, held at St George's Park.

Caroline Yates, Tollbar Academy Principal, said: "The awards are a celebration of the tremendous commitment to Sport made by the students and staff here at Tollbar Academy."
