Harry, Gareth win awards

Harry Redknapp and Gareth Bale have achieved the double at the BBC London Sport Awards for 2010.

Harry was named 'Manager of the Year' while Gareth's amazing year continued by being named 'Footballer of the Year'.

Joining us in October, 2008, Harry initially guided the team away from the relegation zone up to eighth and then took us to fourth in the Premier League last season.

That meant qualification for the Champions League and after the play-off was negotiated, we topped a group that included reigning European champions Inter Milan. We're also fifth in the Premier League.

Gareth won his place back in the starting line-up on January 2, 2010 and hasn't looked back, producing memorable performance after memorable performance, including a hat-trick in the San Siro, and piling up a host of awards along the way, including BBC Wales Sports Personality.

The awards took place last Sunday.

Other football winners included Dagenham boss John Still (Sports Personality), Fulham (Sporting Moment, win against Juventus), Jack Wilshere (Young Footballer) and Chelsea (Team of the Year).
