For Him! The Rise and Fall of Roy Weston Genre by Malcolm Keith Needham.


Roy Weston was born into a wealthy family and raised in a big stone house on a hill overlooking the poor, coal-mining village of Brexley in North Yorkshire, England. Having nearly died of meningitis at the age of three years old, he is bullied by the kids at school until his mother pulls him out of school at the age of ten. His education from that point forward consists of what he learns himself by roaming the streets of the village in the dark and peeping through people’s windows. At the age of fourteen, he watches through a window as his football hero, John Finley, attacks a pedophile, meaning to kill him. His friend leaves the building thinking he has done exactly that, but Roy enters afterward, realizes the man is still alive, and finishes the job. And so begins his life of crime.

The Oyster Perpetual Pearlmaster is synonymous with elegance and brilliance. Designed to be gem-set, it exalts Rolex’s art of jewelling.

Oyster Perpetual Pearlmaster 39


-Classic timeless elegance

– Gracious lines of the case and Pearlmaster bracelet

– Exclusively in 18 ct yellow, white or Everose gold and set with precious stones

– Instantaneous date with Cyclops lens – Rolex-certified Superlative Chronometer

– Manufacture Rolex self-winding mechanical movement, COSC certified – 34 or 39 mm Oyster case, waterproof to a depth of 100 metres (330 feet)

A pearl in the Oyster collection, the Pearlmaster perpetuates with supreme refinement and gently rounded styling the tradition of the emblematic Datejust model. The Pearlmaster, in a case with gracious lines, features the famous calendar in a window with a Cyclops lens for easy reading, and is fitted with a harmoniously contoured Pearlmaster bracelet. The broader bezel lends itself ideally to being gem set. On some models precious stones pave the dials or appear on the case lugs and bracelet links.


The Pearlmaster dials are available in a wide range of colours and materials that blend perfectly with the rest of the watch. The hues are sublime, the beauty of the surfaces expertly rendered. Depending on the version, mother-of-pearl offers a poetic aura of mystery in an interplay of nuances and beguiling reflections. The diamond-paved versions are a picture of elegant sophistication. For their part, the appliques, whether diamonds in gold settings or elegant gold numerals – including some with signature gem-setting – make every reading of the time a pure delight.


The 18 ct yellow, white or Everose gold on a Pearlmaster shines with a special radiance. Rolex has its own foundry and alloys its gold using the purest raw materials. From casting to the shaping and polishing of the gold, everything is carried out with meticulous care to ensure the uncompromising quality of Rolex gold watches. Everose, an exclusive pink gold alloy patented by Rolex, owes its unique hue to its special composition.


Like all Rolex watches, each Pearlmaster is certified as a Superlative Chronometer. This exclusive designation attests that it has successfully undergone a series of tests conducted by Rolex in its own laboratories and according to its own criteria, which exceed watchmaking norms and standards. These tests are carried out on the fully assembled watch, in order to guarantee its superlative performance on the wrist. The Superlative Chronometer status is symbolized by the green seal that comes with every Rolex watch and is coupled with an international five-year guarantee.

The precision of every movement – officially certified as a chronometer by COSC (Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute) – is, therefore, tested a second time by Rolex after being cased, to ensure that it meets criteria for precision that are far more exacting than those for an official chronometer. The tolerance for the average rate of a Rolex Superlative Chronometer is of the order of -2/+2 seconds per day. Its precision is tested by Rolex using an exclusive methodology that simulates the conditions in which a watch is actually worn and is much more representative of real-life experience.

The Superlative Chronometer certification testing is carried out after casing using state-of-the-art equipment specially developed by Rolex. The entirely automated series of tests also checks the waterproofness, the self-winding capacity and the power reserve of 100 per cent of Rolex watches. These tests systematically complement the qualification testing upstream during development and production that ensures the watches’ reliability, robustness, and resistance to magnetic fields and shocks.


The Pearlmaster’s peerless grace is equalled by the technical qualities that it has in common with every watch in the Oyster collection. The Oyster case of the Pearlmaster, guaranteed waterproof to a depth of 100 metres (330 feet), is a paragon of robustness and elegance. The characteristically shaped middle case is crafted from a solid block of 18 ct gold. Its case back, edged with fine fluting, is hermetically screwed down with a special tool that allows only Rolex watchmakers to access the movement. The winding crown, fitted with the Twinlock double waterproofness system, screws down securely against the case. The crystal, with a Cyclops lens at 3 o’clock for easy reading of the date, is made of virtually scratchproof sapphire. The waterproof case provides the Pearlmaster’s high precision movement with optimal protection.


According to the size, the Pearlmaster is equipped with either calibre 2235 or 2236 (Pearlmaster 34) or calibre 3235 (Pearlmaster 39), self-winding mechanical movements entirely developed and manufactured by Rolex. Their architecture, manufacturing and innovative features make them exceptionally precise and reliable.

The oscillator has a balance wheel with variable inertia regulated extremely precisely with gold Microstella nuts. It is held firmly in place by a height-adjustable traversing bridge enabling very stable positioning to increase shock resistance.

Calibre 3235 features a blue Parachrom hairspring patented and manufactured by Rolex in an exclusive paramagnetic alloy, whilst calibre 2236 incorporates a Syloxi hairspring in silicon also patented and manufactured by the brand. Both hairsprings are insensitive to magnetic fields, offer great stability in the face of temperature variations and remain up to 10 times more precise than a traditional hairspring in case of shocks. In calibres 2235 and 3235, the hairspring is fitted with a Rolex overcoil, guaranteeing its regularity in any position. The geometry of the Syloxi hairspring found calibre 2236 offers the same level of performance. Calibres 2235, 2236 and 3235 are fitted with a self-winding module featuring a Perpetual rotor, which ensures continuous winding of the mainspring by harnessing the movements of the wrist to provide a constant source of energy.

The Pearlmaster’s movement will be seen only by certified Rolex watchmakers, yet it is beautifully finished and decorated in keeping with the brand’s uncompromising quality standards.


Calibres 2236 and 3235 are new-generation movements entirely developed and manufactured by Rolex for a superlative level of performance. Consummate demonstrations of Rolex technology, they offer fundamental gains in terms of precision, power reserve, resistance to shocks and magnetic fields, convenience and reliability. In these calibres, the oscillator is fitted on the Rolex-designed and –patented high-performance Paraflex shock absorbers, increasing shock resistance by 50 per cent. Calibre 2236 features a paramagnetic nickel-phosphorus escape wheel and has a power reserve of approximately 55 hours.

Calibre 3235 incorporates the Chronergy escapement patented by Rolex, which combines high energy efficiency with great dependability. Made of nickel-phosphorus, it is also insensitive to magnetic interference. Thanks to the barrel architecture and the escapement’s superior efficiency, the power reserve of calibre 3235 now extends to approximately 70 hours.


With its soft lines, the Pearlmaster bracelet gives the watch a highly individual character and offers the wearer maximum comfort. This bracelet, which was created especially for the Pearlmaster, includes ceramic inserts inside the links to enhance its flexibility and longevity. It is fitted with a concealed Crownclasp, which is opened using a Rolex crown-shaped lever, adding to the watch’s aesthetic appeal and ease of use. On some models, the Pearlmaster bracelet is also graced with diamonds. A subtle echo of the bezel, the magnificent gem-setting provides the finishing touch to an authentic gem in watchmaking.

In a world where quality is often sacrificed for cost and speed, there is a new dawn for Berkeley Square London Dry Gin. Standing bold and proud in a striking new look bottle, revealed for the first time in the UK this year, every drop of this award-winning gin is distilled to perfection, resulting in the most refined and smoothest tasting gin possible.

What elevates Berkeley Square Gin above its competitors and lead the way in the luxury gin category is the way in which it is made. The meticulous master distiller first triple distills the base spirit using a small copper still before using the bouquet garni technique, taking the four hero ingredients – kaffir lime leaves, lavender, sage and basil – and delicately hand-wrapping them in a muslin cloth, before steeping the clothed parcel in the base spirit for 48 hours to infuse and impart the herbal flavours and essential oils. The blend of triple distillation and the distinctive infusion process results in a wonderfully delicate and smooth taste that can be enjoyed even sipped neat.

Berkeley Square Gin evokes the timeless style and elegance associated with London’s most affluent area, Mayfair, through its design, craftsmanship and handmade detailing. The exquisite bottle is shaped like a glass decanter with a silver engraved stopper that has the mechanics to ensure it is always in union with the neck collar, allowing the product to stand proud in the most exclusive of bars.

The bottle’s most prominent feature is the iconic lion head knocker that can also be seen adorned on the majestic doors that surround Berkeley Square. Each lion head embellishment is hand polished and placed on each bottle as the ultimate finishing touch, channeling the craftsmanship and care that goes into making this luxurious quintessential British Gin.

Berkeley Square Gin appeals to those with a taste for the finest quality. It is best is best served on the rocks with a basil leaf or as a classic gin martini, letting the natural botanical flavours speak for themselves and allowing the smoothness and complexity of this refined, luxurious spirit to enthral those lucky enough to try it.

FIR Industries.

They are the only company today that uses nanometer-sized Tourmaline particles and infuses the particles into fabrics and bond crystals to that fabric. Tourmaline has significant health benefits which include:

· Enhance the flow of Chi Energy

· Reduce Oxidative Stress

· Accelerate Healing

· Reduce Inflammation

· Increase Blood Flow & Blood Oxygen Levels

· Generate New Blood Vessels

Tourmaline is a therapeutic mineral that has been used for millennia in Eastern medicine and around the world, but western societies have only recently started embracing this natural mineral for its numerous health and wellness applications. Numerous modern-day studies have shown that the energies emitted by tourmaline, when absorbed through the body, support overall health and wellness in regards to healing, sleep patterns and detoxification.

The Tourma Miracle Tape – The nanometer sized tourmaline particles that are infused into Tourma Tape are subtle, yet powerful. The tourmaline absorbs body heat and then transmits that energy back into the body in the form of far infrared light. The tourmaline in Tourma Tape also produces negative ions that enhance a more alkaline environment in the body. Alkaline body tissues heal at a more rapid rate. Other benefits of these negative ions, include; scavenging free radicals and reducing inflammation, as well as increasing blood flow and oxygen levels in the bloodstream. All of this encourages accelerated healing and a more rapid recovery from physical activities.

The Tourma Sleeves – Tourma Sleeves (sold as a pair) come in black and can be used on either the arm or the leg. Tourmaline particles have been shown to convert body heat into therapeutic far infrared energy. Tourmaline particles also produce negative ions that enhance a more alkaline environment in the body, which encourages accelerated healing, a more rapid recovery from physical activities and also reduces the oxidative stress.

The Tourma Blanket – Right now, you can get 20% off with discount code TB20 (expires 11/30). This blanket supports sound, deep and restful sleep. Tourmaline increases production of Serotonin Hormone and also increase alpha brain waves. This results in a greater amount of deep and restorative sleep. The Tourmaline particles absorb heat and then convert that heat into Far Infrared Energy, which is then transmitted back into the body. The Tourma Blanket has a comfortable feel and luxurious quality. It is 100% polyester and is soft on the skin. Just-Machine Wash & Tumble Dry.

The Tourma Scarf – Wrap up in Cannoli Cream, Jet Black and Regal Red. They are 12″ wide and 69″ long. Tourma Scarves contain nanometer-sized tourmaline particles. Tourmaline particles have been shown to convert body heat into therapeutic far infrared energy. This far infrared energy is not only therapeutic, but it can help you to keep warm during cold winter days and nights. They also double as a multipurpose wrap, which you can use anywhere on your body that needs some therapeutic energy.

The Tourma Mat for Pets! – The Tourma Mat for pets provides healthy and therapeutic benefits that animals can feel. Pet parents have repeatedly reported a decrease in anxiety during pet transport, improved sleep and an increase in activity level for arthritic pets. We’ve even heard a Tourma Mat completely stopped one pet from snoring.

Glen Moray Launch Fired Oak Cask 10-year-old Single Malt


The team at Glen Moray Single Malt Whisky is excited to be launching Glen Moray Fired Oak 10- Year-Old Single Malt Whisky this November as they continue to develop their ‘Gateway to Flavour’ by adding a bold new expression which is intensely sweet and smooth.

Master Distiller, Graham Coull was inspired to created Glen Moray Fired Oak Single Malt Whisky by the increase in popularity of American Bourbon and the success of the sweeter flavour within the drinks market. One of the key elements for producing American Bourbon is that the spirit has to be aged in a new charred (virgin) oak cask which gives the resulting spirit a sweeter flavour.

Glen Moray Fired Oak is a Single Malt Whisky matured for 10 years in ex-Bourbon casks and finished in heavily charred American Oak casks, resulting in a whisky which is sublimely smooth with intense spice and toasted vanilla flavour.

The attention to detail is imperative. Graham Coull has worked closely with the distillery’s cooperage to source the finest new American Oak barrels for finishing, as the consistency and security of the supply of casks is very important.

Graham then selects the precise firing regime to achieve exactly the right level of char to impart intense flavour and colour to the whisky. As Glen Moray’s wood finished expressions are growing in popularity, Graham is working at least two years ahead to ensure that the distillery can satisfy the growth in demand.

Graham says: “Fired Oak is all about enhancing flavours rather than adding different character. The Virgin Oak intensifies the existing vanilla and spice flavours which have come from the ex-Bourbon barrels. Two elements are key – quality of cask and timing, both are crucial to obtaining just the right flavour infusion. To create a balance I have selected Virgin Oak casks with differing lengths of finish to ensure that the final whisky is consistent.”

Over the final maturation period, the spirit slowly changes, the colour deepens and the taste profile takes on intense notes of vanilla sweetness and smokiness from the oak. Only when it reaches its peak, after 10 months, is it ready to be bottled and enjoyed.

“Developing this whisky was akin to blowing gently on the embers of a bonfire to bring the flames back to life” enthuses Graham.

Tasting Notes:

Nose: A sweet shop in a glass. Barley sugars, pineapple chunks and butter toffee.

Taste: Blackcurrant jam and chewy liquorice toffee. Pleasantly sweet and spicy with layers of vanilla bark. This whisky is sweeter than the other single malts in Glen Moray’s collection.

Finish: Dark chocolate dissolves over the tongue and fades revealing a hint of smokiness and toasted vanilla.

Available soon from:,, Royal Mile Whiskies, Scotch Whisky Experience, Gordon Macphail, Good Spirits Company and all good whisky specialist retailers.

RRP: £39.99 for a 70cl bottle ABV: 40%

With future gazing Brits believing we could be made to leave the planet because our world has run out of natural resources, almost half (45%) of those surveyed think that it’s probable we will one day be made to move to another planet because of overcrowding.

Generations are aligned in their ambitions to experience space travel; 88% of kids and over two thirds (71%) of adults think it will be possible for humans to live on other planets in the future. Statistics show that Centennials remain the most enthused about exploring the solar system; 57% of kids are excited by the concept of space travel.

With this in mind, it’s no surprise two fifths (42%) of adults agree that space survival skills should be taught in schools to prepare their children for life on other planets. Here are the top five skills adults think they need to survive on another planet:

Survival skills (61%)
Understanding of science (47%)
Being able to build structures (46%)
High level of physical fitness (45%)
A full understanding of agriculture (38%)
The research also reveals that British kids fancy a vacation to Venus, with two thirds (63%) agreeing that in the future humans will be able to visit other planets on holiday. Whilst over three quarters (82%) of 8-year old children predict that space travel will be part of their future holiday plans.

To accompany the research findings, Ubisoft have collaborated with Commander Chris Hadfield on a content series of films to be released throughout World Space Week ahead of the game’s launch on 16th October. When asked about his own inspiration to pursue a life in the stars, Commander Chris Hadfield commented: “Science fiction encouraged me to pursue a career in space exploration; imagination is crucial to inspire exploration and discovery. If you see someone achieving something you never thought was possible, it becomes probable and the seed of a dream is planted. So many things I’ve done have been stimulated by creative experience. If something engages you, it changes you and makes you look at the world a little differently.’ Finally, teaching children to believe in themselves is vital if they want to achieve something great in technology or space.”

Stefan McGarry, Senior PR Manager at Ubisoft, commented: “The team at Ubisoft Toronto have created Starlink: Battle for Atlas so that children and parents can embark on the ultimate adventure with modular starships in order to protect valuable natural resources against alien lifeforms. We’ve loved working on these videos with Chris Hadfield and think they offer practical advice on the possibilities of real-life space travel for aspiring dreamers. It’s also wonderful to hear how excited the next generation are about the possibilities of inhabiting another planet, and their enthusiasm around space exploration, which are all very promising signs for a future in the stars.”

Starlink: Battle for Atlas will be released next week on Tuesday, 16th October and will be available on Nintendo Switch, the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system and Xbox One.

Scaramanga – Upcycled Vintage Arcade Cabinet

Scaramanga is bringing back some vintage arcade nostalgia with this iconic ‘slot machine’ which has been innovatively upcycled into a wonderful storage cabinet.

Re-visit the vintage era of pinball and slot machines of the 1960′s to the 70′s with this vintage slot machine cabinet – an old arcade piece with its insides remove and replaced with a shelf.

We imagine that ‘Target 100’ – the brand name of this machine – was quite a hit in its heyday: flashing lights, hopes of getting rich quick double bonuses, credits and high-pitched electronic noises!

Ideally suited both wall mounting, sat on top of a counter or directly on the floor. At home, we’d recommend for a bathroom, hallway, kitchen or living room mounting.

The original front facade glass is a wonderful piece of arcade artwork. Its push buttons are purely decorative but make a super visual and stimulating conversation piece for a hipster office, cool retail environment or vintage influenced home.

Upcycled Vintage Arcade Cabinet size: W52cm x D20cm x H80cm.

This is an old piece of vintage history, its many minor scuffs and distressed surfaces reflect its long arcade and gaming history.

Scaramanga is fortunate enough to source a selection of these unusual lovely vintage shaving boxes which have been designed to look like books.

Each one of Scaramanga’s unique old boxes is slightly different – they have been lovingly restored to make them a perfect treasure box with a great t and feel which adds to their appeal – they would make a great jewellery, cufflink or make-up box.

Approximate sizes: W20-23cm x D13-15cm x H6-7cm

The Black Sheep Brewery has been causing scrums in pubs and bars with its rugby-inspired ale, Ram Tackle.

Ram Tackle, a 4.1% ABV ruby ale with its ‘pack’ of eight different English hops, was first launched in 2017 ahead of the Six Nations championship that year. It also ‘kicked off’ Black Sheep’s 2018 seasonal ale calendar.

Ram Tackle is the third rugby-themed beer created by the Masham-based brewery, following on from Blind Side and Ruckin’ Disaster, which were brewed ahead of and after the 2015 Rugby World Cup.

Jo Theakston, Sales and Marketing Director at Black Sheep Brewery, said: “English rugby has enjoyed a welcome resurgence over the last couple of years, following the disastrous World Cup campaign on home soil in 2015. We’re massive rugby fans at Black Sheep and have used this enthusiasm for the game to create several rugby-inspired brews.

“Ram Tackle has been well-received, especially over the Six Nations championship earlier in 2018, and Ruckin’ Disaster provided some comfort to rugby fans after the last World Cup!”

Jo added: “We have continued to produce a number of award-winning beers and it is a testament to the hard work, creativity and dedication of our brewing team, who were instrumental in producing brands such as Ram Tackle, Blind Side and Ruckin’ Disaster.”

For Him! Morrows Outfitters London, embroidered socks!


It wouldn’t be Christmas with out a new pair of socks, and at Morrows Outfitters we believe those socks should come with a story of a local business that’s remained in the same family since 1912.

Morrows Outfitters, are an independent fashion retailer based in London. They sell a range of clothing for the everyday gentleman, and they’re particularly famous for their (removed embroidered) socks.

Let’s take you back to 1912 – Albert Morrow opened his first shop in Liverpool. He was committed to providing high quality products and appreciated the importance of satisfying the needs of his customers. The business flourished for three-quarters of a century.

In 2011 Philip Morrow re-established his great-grandfather’s business in London. Philip is the fourth generation selling menswear under the Morrow’s name. Every sock sold by Morrow’s is designed by Philip Morrow and manufactured in the Midlands – the factory used is a fourth generation business, having been in hosiery industry since 1895. They are one of the few remaining independent hosiery manufacturers in this country.

Philip became aware of the trademark for a high quality sock: the ‘hand-linked’ toe. This is the process of closing the toe seam by matching the stitches on either side of the unfinished sock. These stitches are linked together to provide the wearer with an essentially seamless toe. This is the alternative to machine linking which overlocks the seam and often causes discomfort and irritation when wearing well fitted shoes. All of the socks sold by Morrow’s are made using this traditional method which requires considerable skill.

The socks are £14 per pair or £20 monogrammed. They also offer a sock subscription service – new socks delivered to your door each month!

This year the Morrow’s Embroidered Wedding Sock service has proved incredibly popular and we’re proud to have made it into so many wedding photo albums.

The present aim of the business is to take the best of the past, including business methods and style, and combine it with a contemporary twist.



Other products in the Morrows range include cotton shirts, silk ties, leather card holders, cashmere scarves, and braces. Morrows has recently opened its first permanent store on the corner of Lacy Road and Putney High Street. There are They’re also opening a number of pop-up Christmas shops around London: Putney Shopping Exchange, Unit 18 – Open now Centre Court, Wimbledon, Unit 223 – Open now Piccadilly Arcade, Unit 12 – Open from 3rd to 31st December You can visit their ​online shop here​.


Ok, so Santa is traditionally seen as a larger than life character in more ways than one…

…and many people seem partial to a mince pie or seventeen, which goes some way to explaining why (it’s predicted) Brits will pile on a massive 20 million stone (more than a lb each) between December 25 and January 1 this year.

And yet, there are also lots of people who wish they could eat what they want but not begin January far heavier than they began December.

Cue MODIUS… a NEW health-tech wearable weight loss device here to STOP the nation piling on the pounds this Christmas and then having to loosen their work belts a notch (or three) in January, which I thought would be perfect for your gift guide for the girl who has everything but may be looking to lose weight.

This Christmas, enjoy, be merry, be a Modius user! The latest in neuroscience will simply make you want to eat fewer Christmas treats and crave fewer mince pies, therefore keeping waistlines down…. and without the pain of starving yourself when everyone else is having fun. And it’s all because your brain controls this stuff, and you can now control it.

Founded in 2015 by Dr Jason McKeown, Neurovalens is the global health-tech company behind Modius. It gently stimulates parts of the brain associated with satiety, hunger and metabolism and is now changing the concept of how we lose weight, and more importantly, keep it off.

Dr. Jason McKeown says: “We see Modius as an entirely new way to target weight loss. Dieting is totally transformed when you help people reduce their appetite and cravings. It actually becomes enjoyable.”

About Modius: Modius is made by California/Northern Ireland-based health-tech company, Neurovalens; Modius uses safe, easy, wearable neuro technology to help make weight loss easier.

Modius works by sending a slight, low-level pulse into the brain which targets the area responsible for your desire for food by reducing your appetite and cravings, the user simply needs to eat less!

About Modius: Modius is the first headset from California and Northern Ireland-based health-tech company, Neurovalens and the first in its category to introduce wearable neuro technology to help make weight loss easier.

Modius works by sending a safe low-level pulse into the brain which targets the area responsible for your desire for food by reducing your appetite and cravings, the user simply needs to eat less!

Results both in lab testing and in the real-world show people losing on average 4% body-fat after just three months use.

Since it’s launch on Indiegogo late last year Modius now has some impressive customer data.

After more than 350,000 user sessions:

· after 10 weeks the average loss is approximately 9lbs

· the top user has lost 87lbs – over six stone

· the top 100 users have lost 38lbs on average each – more than two and a half stone

· the top 1000 users have lost 14lbs – a stone

· heavier users are losing more weight

· under-30s, over-60s all age groups are reporting weight loss

We are seeing some fantastic real-life results; Julie Tarbox has been using the headset for three months and has lost over three stone!

Great Coaching Moment of the Year

Kris Stafford, Stephen Quinn and Harrison Marshall of Old Otliensians RUFC – 2018 RFU Junior Vase (Rugby Union) (Otley) won the new for 2018 Great Coaching Moment of the Year. Open to a public vote, which concluded on the night of the Awards, the Old Otliensians managed to field of stiff competition from Tracey Neville and Gareth Southgate to take the gong which celebrates a particular moment in time when a coach’s support and guidance really paid off.

Following winning the Great Coaching Moment of the Year Award, Old Otliensians Head Coach Kris Stafford said:

“This is unbelievable. It’s not just what the three of us have done, or the players, it’s the whole of Otley that have got behind us.

“We got the whole town of Otley together for a big day at Twickenham and this is just another piece in that amazing puzzle.”

In The Coaching Chain category, Welsh Tour de France winner Geraint Thomas’ coaches were recognised for the contribution they’ve made throughout his life. The winning coaches were Tim Kerrison, Matt Parker, Rod Ellingworth, Darren Tudor and Debbie Wharton.

Also on the night, the head coaches of GB’s gold medallists from the PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympic and Paralympic Games were inducted into UK Coaching’s hall of fame.

Amanda Pirie, coach to Menna Fitzpatrick and guide Jennifer Kehoe, who won gold in the alpine skiing women’s slalom, and Eric Bernotas, coach to Lizzy Yarnold, who won gold in the women’s skeleton, were presented with Mussabini Medals (named after pioneer sports coach Sam Mussabini) to acknowledge their hand in creating GB winter Olympic and Paralympic success.

Emma Atkins, Director of Coaching at UK Coaching said:

“The UK Coaching Awards is a way for the nation to praise the great coaching that takes place, and a chance for us in the coaching sector to reflect and celebrate the effect great coaching has on society.

“We are privileged to be able to recognise more great coaching again, especially, in a year where we’ve worked hard to help the public understand what great coaching looks like following the launch of the first ever Coaching Week.

“I am also thrilled to see that more women coaches were recognised for their great coaching expertise, which is testament to the hard work and dedication of many partners who work tirelessly to ensure we create a culture in the coaching sector where everyone can thrive.

“I would like to congratulate all of this year’s winners – as well as the finalists – for their incredible achievements and for benefiting the lives of so many. Well done”
