Cliff Elliott, Club Chair and Steve Kell,Club Secretary attended the Your Champions Awards Dinner on Friday 6th November 2009 at the Chester Crowne Plaza on behalf of Upton Football Club.

The event was organised by  Trinity Mirror Cheshire – the sister publishers to the Wirral News  – and  our co-sponsors ScottishPower.

As Wirral News winners of the Sporting Champion category Upton Football Club went forward to the finals of the  Trinity Mirror-Scottish  Power Your Champions  awards.

The competition was  exceptionally tough and  the judges  had a hard time  deliberating.

At the awards night, hosted by snooker star Willie Thorne, the names of the overall regional winners were announced. Upton F.C. did not win the overall award for Sporting Champions but as Steve Kell said, ‘The standard of the finalists was excellent with some very heart warming and upsetting stories – all finalists were a credit to the community that they work in ‘

Jane Clare, Executive Editor for the Wirral News, said: “It was really inspirational to read people’s stories and see what they do to make a difference in their community.

“Picking winners was really hard. But everyone who was nominated deserves credit for the work they do.”
