Sue Campbell receives damehood, as sportspeople feature heavily in New Year's Honours

By Tom Walker    30 Dec 2019

Former UK Sport chair, Baroness Sue Campbell, has received a damehood in this year's New Year's honours list.

The long-time sports administrator – who was named as one of the 100 most powerful women in the UK by the BBC in 2013 – became baroness in 2008 in recognition of her successful period at UK Sport.

"These things are an immense privilege but they're also something you accept on behalf of an awful lot of other people who make your job possible," Campbell said.

Campbell was among a host of sportspeople receiving honours in this year's list.

A number of players and staff associated with the World Cup-winning England cricket team received recognitions.

Eoin Morgan, England's one-day captain, was made CBE, while there were OBEs for coach Trevor Bayliss and all-rounder Ben Stokes. Other players in the team to have received honours were Jos Buttler and Joe Root – both who were made MBEs.

There were other cricket-related honours too. Former West Indies cricket captain Clive Lloyd received a knighthood, while Colin Graves, chair of the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) was made a CBE.

Women's sport was well-represented in this year's list, with taekwondo double Olympic gold medallist Jade Jones being given an OBE, alongside Solheim Cup captain Catriona Matthew.

Other women athletes to have been recognised included England women's football player Jill Scott, England netballers Serena Guthrie and Jo Harten (both MBEs), heptathlete Kelly Sotherton (MBE) and former squash world champion and three-time Commonwealth Games silver medallist Laura Massaro (MBE).

In addition, British Gymnastics chief executive Jane Allen was given an MBE, while broadcaster Gabby Logan was given the same honour for promoting women in sport.

Other sports-related honours include Dr Rod Jaques, director of medical services at the English Institute of Sport, receiving an OBE for medical services to Olympic and Paralympic sport and Martin McElhatton, CEO of WheelPower being made MBE for services to disability sport.
