It has been a week of awards, with last night seeing the annual Sportsman's Dinner take place at the Plymouth Hotel. It was a glittering occasion, further embellished by a very good keynote speech from old boy Mike Sandle, who attend FDMC in the 1970's.
Mike is the current manager of the NZ cricket team and gave some great insights into the type of sportsman he deals with on a daily basis and the wide range of places and situations he finds himself in. It was greatly appreciated that Mike should make time to come and speak in what is a very busy schedule leading up to next year's World Cup.
A great many college sportsman were recognised on the night with the big three awards being made as follows.
Contribution to Sport at FDMC: Nick Tipler
FDMC Team of the Year: 1st XV Rugby
FDMC Sportsman of the Year: Jordie Barrett
We will have more photos from the awards next week.
