“And it’s not just the athletes who are household names, throughout the city there are many people toiling away without recognition at their chosen sport.
“Congratulations to Ashley and all the winners – I have no doubt I’ll be hearing about many of you in the future.”
Special guest, champion boxer Danny Green, entertained the crowd with stories about his fighting days and the battles he fought outside the ring.
