East of Scotland Award for Reivers Captain

At The East of Scotland squash End of Season Presentation dinner several awards were handed out, Edinburgh Sports Club were crowned East League Division 1 Champions and Heriot Watt triumphed in the East of Scotland Cup.  But in the individual awards Gala Squash Club Captain Del Sharratt was awarded the prestigious “Clubperson of the year” award.  Former Club person winner Iain Clark presented the trophy to Del and said “This award is to recognize an individual who’s commitment and dedication has been over and above expected levels and is vital in the progression of squash in theEast of Scotland.  Del is a deserving winner; we received an unprompted e-mail from a member at Gala squash club recommending Del for this award.  Del single-handedly runs the club, he does everything from run the internal competitions, maintenance of the building, runs the finances of the club, he runs the juniors, arranges events, he is Captain of the League team, he deals with memberships.  Del is well known in squash Circles around the East of Scotland and it is right that his exploits are recognised.”
Del said “I really wasn’t expecting anything.  As far as I am concerned it’s a team effort to keep things going at the squash club, I do what I can but I am supported by the committee and a Very Tolerant and Supportive wife!  I wish I could do more for the Club and East Squash but I juggle my life with a full time job, two young kids and the squash club.  I am honoured that the East of Scotland Squash Committee have recognised my hard work in this manner and I will treasurer this award.”
