Nineteen year old Anya Colley from Nottingham and Matthew Palfreyman, also nineteen, from Lancashire have received special local recognition awards for their participation in the sport of powerboat racing, adding to their ever increasing list of accolades.

Anya, the 2011 British RYA Jetsport IJSBA Ski Champion, British RYA Jetsport Ski Limited Champion and 2011 IJSBA European Ski Ladies Limited Champion, attended the Derbyshire Sports Awards after being crowned Sportsperson of the Year at the annual Erewash Sports Awards in October.

She joined the other eight overall category winners to represent Erewash in the Derbyshire County Sport Awards and was one of three finalists put forward for the 2011 University of Derby Sportsperson of the Year award.

Anya took a dignified runner up in the University of Derby Sportsperson of the Year Awards, with 18-year-old table tennis star Liam Pitchford, from Chesterfield, being announced as the winner of the title during the ceremony at The Roundhouse in Derby, which was attended by 300 people.

Meanwhile Palfreyman, who finished second in the British RYA F4 2011 Championship and has been representing Britain in the International F4s competition as part of Team Atlantic where he currently sits in second in the championship, was announced runner up in the Sports Personality of the Year Awards at the West Lancashire Advertiser Sports Awards Ceremony.

The Awards Ceremony that took place at Edge Hill University saw players, coaches and volunteers recognised for their efforts and achievements in sport over the past year.

From cricket and football to motor racing and archery, the rich diversity of West Lancashire’s incredible sporting talent was represented on the night, with a total of nine awards up for grabs.

Matt who’s next race starts in Dubai on the seventh of December was blown away at receiving the award: 'To represent your club, county and country in sport is a great honor and to be recognised by the local press and people for doing something I love makes the award all the more special! I’d like to thank everyone for voting for me and for their continuing support.'

RYA Powerboat Racing Officer Nicola Drummond concluded: 'We are delighted for both Matt and Anya. They are both extremely talented at what they do and it is wonderful to see them getting the recognition in their local areas for the hard work and dedication that they put in to their sport. We all wish them continued success.'
