BT South Tyneside Limited is continuing its tremendous record of backing the sporting excellence category of our Best of South Tyneside awards. This year’s winner will follow in the footsteps of boxer Anthony Nelson who claimed the Commonwealth superflyweight title.

Mark Johnson, chief operating officer at BT South Tyneside, said: “I think it’s really important to support this fantastic award which recognises the ambition, talent and achievements of the people involved with sport in South Tyneside.”

He added: “The Sporting Excellence award is recognised not just in the borough – but also regionally and nationally. South Tyneside has produced some exceptional sporting talent over the years, and this award celebrates the excellence and commitment of those individuals and teams.”
