FXU Dodgeball coach Ryan Borley has won Young Coach of the Year at the Cornwall Sports Partnership Awards.
Ryan was presented with his award at the ceremony on 3 November, hosted by former Olympic athlete and Pirate FM DJ Neil Caddy.
Sponsored by Truro & Penwith College, the award recognises individuals aged 25 and under who have proved dedication to getting more people active and demonstrated high quality coaching with innovative practice.
Ryan Borley: “The Cornwall Sports Partnership Awards evening was inspirational. I have never been to such a prestigious event; it was like a mini Sports Personality of the Year. The experience of setting up and running FXU Dodgeball has been rewarding in itself but winning the Young Coach of the Year award really tops it off. I’m extremely proud of what myself and fellow committee members have achieved in the last year and I can’t wait to see how the club progresses. This season we’re competing in the South West University League, as we continually strive to help develop the sport in this region.”
Throughout the evening, Cornwall Sports Partnership also raised £500 for Mind, raising awareness of the impact sport and physical activity can have on mental health.
Hayley Curtis, FXU Sports Manager: “I’m so proud to see Ryan be recognised so highly for his work with the FXU Dodgeball team. The club really has gone from strength to strength and he has played a vital part in its success.”
