SOUTH Essex College have been celebrating their sporting success.

The Southend-based college have won plenty of prizes in the past few months.

And student manager Brad Brooks was pleased to see those achievements recognised.

“Award ceremonies such as this provide staff and students with a rare opportunity to sit back and reflect on the hard work from the previous nine months,” said Brooks.

“Seeing learners achieve their targets set at the start of the year is a real bonus of the job.”

Southend United legend and current Millwall first team development coach Adam Barrett was on hand to present the trophies.

And a notable winner on the evening was Izaih Antoine, who scooped no less than five awards.

Izaih was recognised as one of the BTEC students of the year and he also got his hands on the Football Academy player of the year award for 2018/19.

Other winners included Roman Gabor, Mitchell Clarkson, Harry Watson, Finley Vitalis, Macie Wise, Mia Waddell, Joe Gladman, Joseph Le Fever, Thomas MacIver, Scott Healey, Owen Howard, Chay Saggers, Ben Tilson and Tom Lowe.
