The Awards which took place in Belfast City Hall, were attended by some of the City’s most dedicated sports people.

In receiving his award, North Belfast Harrier Matt humbly thanked the Belfast City Council and added that his personal reward comes from seeing each individual who seeks his coaching advice grow and reach their potential whatever that may be.

Matt is undoubtedly one of Belfast’s most dedicated and finest coaches working with large groups of athletes across both Club & Community.

Many Congratulations to Matt on a well deserved award!
