Footballer Casey Howe who won this year’s Impartial Reporter ‘Young Sports Personality of the Year’, has received a Greg Turley Bursary Award. Robbie received the award at the Impartial Reporter’s Celebration of Sport at the Lough Erne Resort.
The awarding of the Greg Turley Bursary Award is to reflect that achieving any sporting goal takes huge commitment and resources, and this will help support Casey’s endeavours over the coming years.
It has been another outstanding year for Fermanagh’s sports people, in particular the young people, as highlighted by these sports awards. 16 year old Enniskillen Royal Grammar student Casey won NIWFA U19 player of the year for the second time and the U19 top scorer award. She has represented Northern Ireland U17s, Linfield Ladies Senior and helped Linfield U19s secure the league title. In school Casey continues to balance the demands of her studies with her outstanding achievements and commitment to football and training. A great example to younger students and sports people.
Lauri McCusker, Director of the Fermanagh Trust which administers the Greg Turley Bursary Awards said “Congratulations to Casey on becoming ‘Young Sports Personality of the Year’ and well done to all the other winners at the Impartial Reporter’s Sports Awards. Casey is an excellent ambassador to Fermanagh’s young sports stars, with a promising set of sporting talents and we wish her every success in the future. Providing the Bursary to Casey is a fitting way of celebrating Greg Turley’s memory and continuing his work of helping others.”
The Greg Turley Bursary Awards – established after the death of the popular St Michael’s College teacher, support young people in the fields of community service, sport, music and drama. For more information on the awards CLICK HERE
