Harry Gurney and Stuart Broad were recognised for their performances in 2019 with an accolade apiece at last night’s Nottingham Post Sports Awards.

Gurney scooped the night’s flagship Sportsman of the Year prize for his globetrotting exploits with the ball in 2019.

The left-armer topped the wicket-taking charts for the Outlaws as they reached their third Finals Day in four years, while also scooping limited-overs titles in Australia, Abu Dhabi, Pakistan and the Carribean.

The 33-year-old beat Commonwealth boxing champion Leigh Wood and tennis player Luke Bambridge to the award.

Broad, meanwhile, was honoured with the Nottinghamshire County Cricket Player of the Year award after enjoying his most productive Ashes series yet with the ball.

The right-armer amassed 30 wickets across the Test summer, taking the prize scalp of Australia opener David Warner on seven occasions.

Gurney and Matt Carter were Broad’s fellow nominees after impressing in the Outlaws’ Vitality Blast campaign.

Notts were also nominated for the Team of the Year award after maintaining their consistency in white-ball cricket, with the Outlaws reaching the semi-final stages of the Blast and the Royal London One-Day Cup.

The Outlaws ultimately lost out on the night to the Great Britain Paracanoe Squad, having also been nominated alongside Nottingham Vipers.
