An amazing night with Sporting Equals at the weekend. The BEDSA Awards have come a long way in the 5 years since they were started. We love working with the team all year round on the issues we still face in sport for the BAME community. In particular it was great to see the cohort from #leaderboard Academy graduate and be celebrated.

Given the issues still facing sport and society in general the BEDSAs are a great opportunity to celebrate the good things are happening in our communities and amongst some really talented athletes and clubs.

I was particularly pleased to see Nigel Walker recognised and special call out for Brendon Batson OBE. Again it was right to recognise his contribution over recent decades.
