Father-son combination of Barry and Chris Connolly are the Shepparton Sportsman's Club's sports star for May. 

The award winners were announced at the club's regular dinner meeting at the Victoria Hotel on Wednesday night. 

More than 150 Sportsman's Club members, friends and Shepparton Sherbourne Apex Club members attended the dinner, which for this month had special significance.

The dinner in addition to being the Sportsman's Club regular meeting was held as a night of appreciation to former Shepparton residents, Max and Yvonne Carlos. 

The former Australia light weight boxing champion was foundation member of the Shepparton Sherbourne Apex and Sportsman's Club. 

Max and Yvonne finished operating their clothing business in Shepparton earlier this year and moved to Wangaratta where they run a motel.
