Jack Agnew and Oisin McClelland have been chosen by the Mary Peters Trust “Make it Happen Awards” as the elite young talent in Northern Ireland. They will receive £2000 each to go towards the cost of training, equipment and travel.
Sponsored by Bluefin Sport, the Mary Peters Trust chooses two people each year that it feels are most deserving of the grant to further their sporting development. The money can be used for a variety of things like training, equipment or travel expenses and can be a real boost to these aspiring and hugely talented sport stars.
Eilish Rutherford, Chair of the Mary Peters Trust, said: "This support from Bluefin Sport is invaluable to our charity. These large awards are designed to give the selected athletes a boost in their sporting careers with funding that will give them the opportunity to target a skill or technique to help their competition and give them a competitive edge.
"It is even more important in light of the budgets that are continually being cut in all aspects of sport at present."
"Oisin and Jack are perfect examples of young athletes who are dedicating all their efforts into being the best that they can be in their chosen sporting field and we want to help them as much as we can."
