Fulham Deaf were up for two awards at the prestigious London Sports
Awards 2007, which was hosted by BBC Sport Presenter John Inverdale at
the London Living Room on Thursday 8th March, in the City Hall which is
the office for Ken Livingstone, Mayor of London.

The London Sports Awards, supported by The Lord's Taverners, London
Sports Forum for Disabled People (LSF) and Sport England London,
recognise the outstanding achievements of individuals and groups in the
field of sport for disabled people.

Fulham Deaf Chairman Nick Beese, 1st Team Coach Mark Saunderson and
Fulham FC Community Sports Trust Manager Gary Mulcahey were invited to represent the club, as
we were up for the Club of the Year award.  Mark Saunderson was
nominated for Coach of the Year for his sterling work at Fulham Deaf.

While we did not win anything, we lost to very worthy and deserving
winners on the night, we were very proud to be invited and recognised
for our work in serving deaf football, and setting new standards.
