Sports Community Award Winner 2023/24 – Nia Lewis

At the council’s ordinary meeting held on 17th June 2024 the council were delighted to welcome Nia Lewis the winner of the council’s 2023/24 community sport award.   Nia was joined at the presentation by members of her family.

Nia, from Llangeinor, won the award for her success as a footballer; she has received 2 Welsh caps playing for Wales Under 15 and Wales Under 17 squads.   Nia has travelled extensively with the FAW in the last year, where the teams have played in UEFA cup games and gained promotion from Group B to Group A ready for next year’s UEFA qualifiers.    Nia has also travelled to Boston to train and has played against some US college teams.

Amazingly throughout all this Nia has continued with her education at CCYD and her focus, dedication, hard work and determination to succeed is admirable.   She is a very worthy recipient of this award.

A presentation was made to Nia by the council’s Chair, Councillor Neal Harwood-Scorer of an engraved shield which Nia keeps for a year, a smaller award which Nia keeps and a gift of flowers and a gift card.  They can be seen in the photo below:.
