An up and coming judo star has won a club award.
Zac Ellerby has been presented with Wallend’s Bushido Judo Kwai Club’s Stephen Milsted Award.
It goes to the judoka who is at the top of our medal table.
Zac, who joined Wallsend’s Bushido Judo Kwai in February 2014, has done well to end the year with four gold and one silver.
As a junior himself, Zac’s dad Steve, won the award in 1987.
Stephen Milsted was a founder member of Bushido Judo Kwai on May 3, 1976.
He left England to work abroad in 1978 and it was then that the award was named after him.
