Woking FC captain wins title of county’s best

3:50pm, Fri 24th Jan 2020
Woking FC fans’ favourite Josh Casey has been named Sports Personality of the Year in the Active Surrey Awards, thanks to his dedication to the Cards.

After winning the title of Woking Sports Personality before Christmas, Josh was automatically shortlisted for the county-level honour alongside local winners from other Surrey boroughs. An independent panel of judges has now decided that the Woking FC captain deserves to be recognised as the best of the best for the example he’s set over the last year.

The Active Surrey Awards are designed to celebrate those who inspire or make possible opportunities for others in Surrey to move more.

With more than six in ten adults in England overweight or obese, other figures for Surrey suggest that over 180,000 adults in the county do less than 30 minutes of physical activity per week. Our increasingly sedentary lifestyles are contributing to the rise of serious diseases and putting a burden on local health services so people like Josh can help act as role models.

Josh was singled out in multiple nominations for his consistency, leadership and commitment, with several nominators remarking what a great example he sets for younger fans, particularly as he also holds down a full-time job.

The promotion-winning captain will be officially presented with his trophy by award sponsors BBC Surrey on the pitch at the Laithwaite Community Stadium before the match against Yeovil Town tomorrow, at around 2.45pm, so make sure you're there to give Josh the huge round of applause that he deserves!

Lil Dugan, Interim Director for Active Surrey who organise the Awards comments: “Josh embodies what sport and being active is all about. While we can’t all match his achievements - or reach his levels of fitness - he acts as an example of the value of moving more and being part of something bigger.

“Whether you play in a team with your friends or just keep yourself fit by heading out for a walk at the weekend, being a little more active is something we can all do today to help avoid ill health and instead, live life to the full.�
