Cllr Robert Bevan, Cabinet Member for Sustainable Development, Leisure and Tourism, said: “During these tough economic times, the annual Rhondda Cynon Taf Council Sports Awards recognise and reward the great amount of hard work that goes on behind the scenes to keep our local grassroots sports scene so healthy.
“It is a time to reflect on the past 12 months and give all our sports stars and volunteers, young and old, a huge pat on the back. There are many people out there who work tirelessly - from sports coaches to officials, from those who cut the grass to those who organise the fixtures.
“It is these people that we want to show our appreciation to and acknowledge their efforts at the annual Rhondda Cynon Taf Sports Awards”
