WORLD Cup winner Katy Mclean is to lead a celebration of sporting heroes.

Team captain Katy, who is due to leave her teaching post at Bexhill Academy, in Town End Farm, in the coming weeks to become a professional rugby player, will address 330 guests at the Sport and Physical Activity Awards for County Durham, at Ramside Hall in Durham tonight.

The fly-half led England to victory against Canada to lift the trophy in Paris in August, after three consecutive World Cup final defeats.

Katy said: “I hope my story will inspire many others to push themselves to achieve their dreams and never give up hope.”
