Scarlets stars Tadhg Beirne and Gareth Davies have been snubbed for the prestigious EPCR European Player of the Year 2018 award.

One of the area’s unsung heroes has been honoured after dedicating almost half a century of his life to the sport of sailing. Instructor Colin Magee from Burbage is the deserving winner of the BBC East Midlands Sports Unsung Hero 2013.

He received the award at a surprise and emotional presentation ceremony on Tuesday. Mr Magee was reduced to tears as he said: “I am absolutely overwhelmed. It is just something I do. I get people on the water. “It is something I can share and if I can get just one young person off the streets and away from trouble than I have done something.” Mr Magee is the driving force behind the Leicestershire and Rutland Youth Sailing Team, running courses for schools and youth groups and entering teams into regattas, while he also works … [Read more...] about Unsung hero scoops regional award
