Snooker coach Reg Davies won the Special Recognition Award at the recent Salford Sports Network Awards.
The annual awards ceremony, which recognises local heroes in a variety of sports, saw 82-year-old Davies presented with the Special Recognition Award in honour of his achievements on the snooker scene over many years.
Between 2010 and 2013, Davies completed a full-term enrichment programme for Salford City Academy, and he was an ambassador for Salford during the Olympic Games.
Salford Academy achieved Sport England ‘Club Mark’ accreditation in 2013 and received a visit from a Member of Parliament who said: “The academy has made a significant impact in the community providing young people aged 9 to 18 years with a positive, stimulating and worthwhile activity to enjoy.”
Steve Davis then paid a visit to teach the Functional Snooker in Schools programme in June 2013, which is still in progression.
Davies had previously won the Coach of the Year award in 2010 and 2013.
Salford City College won the Beacon award for Sport in the Curriculum.
