Two animal management students at Barnsley College have been recognised for their sporting prowess.

Craig Donaldson and Elspeth Bovan were winners at the college’s recent Sport and Public Services Awards Evening.

Craig was presented with Rugby Academy Player of the Year whilst Elspeth received the Netball Academy Player of the Year.

Both winners received a trophy and a high street gift card.

Gavin Batty, Director of Sport and Public Services, said: “This is an outstanding achievement for both Craig and Elspeth.

“It’s great to see students from other curriculum departments engage with the Sports Academy and develop as athletes and sports performers alongside their main academic studies.”
