Olympic gold medallist Steve Williams congratulates Bobby Platt
One of Northern Ireland's best-known rowing officials is appointed an MBE in the New Year's Honours List.

Bobby Platt has been involved with the Bann Rowing Club in Coleraine since the early 1940s, firstly as an oarsman and then as a coach and administrator.

He captained the club in 1959/60 and again for a record 10-year spell from 1972 and is currently president.

In 2002, he received a special merit award from Coleraine Borough Council for his services to sport in the area.
