Comet country was well represented at the Herts Sports Partnership Service to Sport Awards.

They took place on Monday night at the University of Hertfordshire's de Havilland campus.

Kayleigh Biggs from Stevenage Hockey Club won the junior official/administrator of the year award.

Letchworth Tennis Club came up trumps as accredited club of the year.

There was also a special award - The Paul Pearce Award for Contribution to Disability Sport. The team award in this category went to Hitchin Town Ability Counts Football Team.

Joe Randall from Letchworth GC Rugby Club was runner-up in the junior coach of the year award.

Svetlana Lebiadzinskaya from Marriotts Gym Club in Stevenage was third in the female community coach of the year category.

The next step for some of the winners will be to represent Hertfordshire in the Sport England Regional Awards in the autumn.

Winners from those awards will be nominated for the national awards in the BBC Sports Personality Unsung Hero Award Category.
