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 Robbie’s endeavours over the coming years.
In what was another outstanding year for Fermanagh’s sports people, in particular the young people, Robbie received a number of accolades including British National Schools Rowing Regatta, Irish Rowing Championship Gold Medallist. He was also selected for Ulster Rugby Schools’ U17 team and captained Enniskillen Royal Grammar School’s Medallion Bowl win.
Lauri McCusker, Director of the Fermanagh Trust which administers the Greg Turley Bursary Awards said “Congratulations to Robbie on becoming ‘Young Sports Personality of the Year’ and well done to all the other winners at the Impartial Reporter’s Sports Awards. Robbie is an excellent ambassador to Fermanagh’s young sports stars, with a promising set of sporting talents and we wish him every success in the future. Providing the Bursary to Robbie is a fitting way of celebrating Greg Turley’s memory and continuing his work of helping others.”
