Congratulations to Lexie Peters, winner of the Melton Times Junior Sports Personality of the Year, sponsored by Samworth Brothers.
Over the last 12 years the annual sporting awards have honoured many local sporting organisations and individuals – everyone from grassroots champions and heroes to international stars, highlighting the depth and breadth of talent in the borough.
Lexie Peters took up Thai boxing with Melton’s Muay Thai Assassins in April 2016. She became British champion in 2017, just a few months after making her competitive debut.
Dickinson & Morris Managing Director Stephen Hallam attended the awards and presented Lexie Peters with her award. He said, “of all the various awards organised by the Melton Times the Sports Awards always leave me with a feeling of pride, awe and amazement. In the Melton Mowbray area we have so much excellence, including world champions, in so many sports & disciplines and across all age groups, from young to senior alike”.
