The recipients of the inaugural Arnold Bibby Award for 2021 were presented with shields on Tuesday 8th February at the Arnold Bibby clubhouse

The junior award was chosen by the coaches. The speech was a follows 

"After discussion between the current junior section coaches we felt that there were several individuals who show what it is to be an athlete and sports person both in their ability, commitment to training, attitude towards instruction and positive interaction with other athletes. Through the struggles we have had (and are still having) with the number of coaches we have and therefore our ability to give the quality of coaching our athletes deserve, it has been really encouraging to see the adaptability across the ages to (on the whole) be grateful for what we can offer. Three athletes were brought to the fore as examples we would point others to by acknowledging them at this time. They support the club through competing for it whilst showing really good attitude at training, though not exclusive in this, Ellie Hann & Anna Nicholson were very much contenders for he award. 

We decided, however, to give this first award to a young man who has encouraged many of us coaches with his willingness, support & ability including stepping up to take his first steps down the path of becoming a coach in his own right.

This award goes to Toby Nicholson."


The senior award was chosen by chairman following a nomination from club member.

The winner of the Senior award is Steve Perry.  Steve has been a member of the club for nearly 35 years, and during that time he has been a competing athlete, committee member (he is our current president), coach, run leader, timekeeper and race organiser.  He has been active not just in club activities, but also in athletics around Lancashire and the North West.

As an athlete, Steve has posted some outstanding times at all distances over the years and he continues to compete in road races.  But he has also devoted a huge amount of time, voluntarily, in organising and officiating at athletics events. He is a familiar figure at road races and park runs around the county.  Without people like Steve, these events would be less frequent, and be lacking in proper organisation.

The above words could equally well apply to Arnold Bibby, and it is fitting that the first recipient of Arnold's award is Steve Perry..
