Liam Tarandij, 14, a member of Judo Excellence and GB cadet was recently nominated Calderdales Junior sportsman of the year at The Sports Presentation night hosted by Halifax Courier News.

The guest speaker for the event was former British Lions Rugby star John Bentley who entertained those present with his dry sense of humour! Liam was up against a 16 yr old England Rugby player and an England Cricket player.

Well done Liam for raising the profile of Judo in the area and for attaining the award.
