Youth is ahead of experience when it comes to this year’s Bridlington Sports Awards.
The shortlist for the top category, to find the Bridlington Sports Person of the Year, is a three-way battle between teenagers who are living up to their huge potential.
Boxer Charlotte Jarvis retained her National Club for Young People title in December, when she won the final in High Wycombe.
That meant she held on to the title she won in 2015, the first year girls were able to enter the championships.
Senna Proctor is making headlines in the world of motorsport and will compete in the British Touring Car Championships in 2017.
Last year, he secured a top 10 finish in the UK Clio Cup, attracting the attention of Vauxhall and he will become the youngest manufacturer driver in the BTCC’s history.
Bridlington Golf Club junior captain Matthew Raybould enjoyed great success as he captained the Yorkshire Under-18s team.
He also retained the East Riding Boys Strokeplay title and won the East Riding Boys Matchplay title, reducing his handicap from two to 0.2.
The Bridlington Sports Awards are run by the Free Press, and are generously sponsored by by Lloyd Dowson and West BS.
