2017 Track Prize Presentation  Posted 06/09/2017

This years Prize Presentation took place at St Mary's C of E Primary School, Tunstall last night. A really good turnout congratulated all the Prize winners in each category. There was a special award handed out to Nesta and Mick Stubbs for their outstanding long service to the Association. Nesta and Mick started out helping at the track in the early 1990's and they have never missed a track league since that time which is an amazing achievement and we doubt this will never be equalled again. They will be sadly missed each thursday helping out however Mick has promised to come down and race the league when he can. League Chairman Phil Houlton presented them with a special trophy that they can keep and also they were awarded the Morris Robinson Trophy. This is the fitrst time this trophy has been awarded to the same people twice whoever we felt their committment to the track was worthy of this award going to them again.
