Celebration of Sport 2019

Live Borders hosted its much anticipated sports awards, the Live Borders Celebration of Sport 2019.

The event was held at the Victoria Halls in Selkirk on Friday 27 September 2019.

Now in its seventh year, the Celebration of Sport Awards recognise the wealth of sporting talent that exists within the region, from sports personalities to teams, coaches, clubs and events that are helping to drive forward sporting excellence and participation across the region.

From international stars to the unsung heroes that make sport happen behind the scenes, 11 awards are presented at an awards dinner, which will once again incorporate new inductees into the Scottish Borders Sporting Hall of Fame.
