Bursary Award Winners 2024

Lady Mayor of Wirral, Cherry Povall, was delighted to present bursary awards to local junior sports people last night, Tuesday 18th June 2024, at Birkenhead Town Hall.
Monies raised by the Wirral Sports Forum funded the bursaries. The Wirral Sports Forum exists to promote Wirral’s sporting success and, where possible, support Wirral’s developing sporting talent. Part of this contribution is to raise funds for the unique bursary award scheme.
The Forum annually announces to its members the opportunity of applying for a sports bursary that will provide financial help to young sports people across the borough to achieve their sporting goals.
This year a record number of 19 incredibly talented young athletes successfully applied for bursaries. The 8 sports represented include Athletics, Golf, Swimming, Gymnastics, Modern Pentathlon, Majorettes, Rugby and Archery.

Commenting on the awards Wirral Sports Forum Chair Ronan Kearney said “We wish all of them success in their individual and team events and look forward to hearing from them on how they all got on. The bursary awards are an exclusive benefit for our forum members. I would encourage all local sports clubs, leagues or associations to join the Wirral Sports Forum. Our fund raising primarily comes from the annual Wirral Sports Awards. This year’s event takes place on 22nd October 2024 at the Floral Pavilion and is celebrating its 60th anniversary. It’s Wirral’s largest multi sports awards ceremony so no local sports club, league or organisation would want to miss out. We will soon be receiving nominations under the different categories. Please keep an eye out in the local press and on social media for details on how to nominate under the various categories.
