Gillingham midfielder Deanna Cooper has won a prestigious award for her hard work and dedication to sport.
16-year-old Deanna had been nominated for the Young Sports Personality of the Year award by the Kent Regional News Group, however, unknown to all, there was an even more special award, for which everyone nominated across all the different groups was in contention, this was the Kent Regional News & Media Editor's Award, which was nominated by the Senior Sports Editor Tony Rickson.
Donna, who has moved up from the Centre of Excellence where she won several caps for England at Under-17 level, joined the Gills despite strong interest from clubs in a higher division. She has been a pivotal player in their midfield and has set up many goals in her 16 appearances, as well as becoming the first Gillingham Ladies player to represent England when she started against Iceland for the Under-17s recently.
Not only is Deanna a rising star in football, she also excels at cricket where she plays for Kent, winners of the County Championship which led to her having the honour of visiting Buckingham Palace in order to collect her medal from the Duke of Edinburgh. She is also a regular in the England under-17 set up at cricket.
She often takes cricket training in the morning, then makes the mad dash to play for the Gills in the afternoon but still puts in a player of the match performance. The award is a reward for her true dedication to sport and for the hard work and support given to her by her family.
