The Sussex Disability League Presentation Event was held on 5th July at the University of Sussex at Falmer. Attended by nearly 300 players, friends, and family and league sponsors the event was a fitting celebration of the league season.

David Barrett, Marketing Officer for the league who also plays for 1066 Specials expressed his thanks to all for another memorable year for League he said “There were so many good times and also rewarding for many of the players and coaches who take the time to train you and take you to matches, what a fantastic venue it was at Sussex University for the awards event. So many of you come to this lovely place and could see that you enjoyed all the lovely photos on display. I’d also like to personally thank all the sponsors for taking the time to help give out the trophies”
