JOSH PINDER collected the inaugural Mick Sullivan Award for Sporting Achievement at a Shaw Cross Sharks Under-16s awards evening last weekend.
The award was introduced by the Sullivan family for Shaw Cross to present to one of their players annually following the death of Mick in April this year, aged 82.
Sullivan was a product of Shaw Cross Sharks before leaving to join Huddersfield 1952.
The winger also played for Dewsbury, Huddersfield, Wigan and St Helens during a glittering career which saw him win the Rugby League World Cup and become a legend of the game.
Mick’s daughter Michelle presented the award to England Under-16 international Pinder, before thanking the club for keeping her father’s memory alive.
Pinder was honoured to receive the award and will now join the Huddersfield Giants Academy in a move which replicates the one made by Sullivan several decades ago.
