Lion Neil McQuaid 8th June 2005 Lion Neil McQuaid is lost for words!
Wednesday 8th June 2005 saw the annual Sefton Sports Council Awards, a glittering
event held at the Royal Clifton Hotel, Southport. An audience of nearly 200 people
celebrated the recognition given to volunteers and amateur sportsmen and women from
around the Metropolitan Borough of Sefton. A total of sixteen categories were honoured,
including the Disabled Sports Personality of the Year, an award sponsored by Southport
The final award of the evening, however, was the Lifetime Achievement Award, and
no-one could have been more surprised than its recipient, Lion Neil McQuaid (on the
left of the photo.) The award was given for a number of years (Neil is only a youngster,
after all!) of totally dedicated service to sport and the development of youth throughout
the area. And incidentally, Lion Neil was also, in his spare time (!) the Welfare
Committee Chairman for Southport Lions Club. Congratulations!!!
