Lois Turner and Matt Loftus (Northern Allstars)
For 2022-23 the clubs and competitions committee have decided to give the award to two people for their performances for Great Britain while developing Goalball in the North East together. This season they have taken Northern Allstars to an all playing level club. They have both contributed away from the court with coaching sessions, organising the teams, and being fantastic role models for members of the club.
Internationally Lois helped GB Women finish 7th at the World Championships, while Matt played a key role in the GB Men finishing 4th at the European B Championships.
Domestically they both played a vital role for Northern Allstars winning both the 20222-23 Intermediate North League and the Goalball UK Super League.
