Time is running out to nominate your local sporting stars for the St Edmundsbury Sports Awards.
A young baton twirler, a member of the West Suffolk Athletics Club and a netball club are among the local sporting stars nominated for this year’s St Edmundsbury Sports Awards, with just a few days to go until nominations close.
Nominations for the St Edmundsbury Sports Awards close at midnight on Sunday (August 14) and organisers Abbeycroft Leisure are making one final appeal for you to nominate local sportsmen and women for the awards, now in its 10th year.
The awards will be held at The Apex in Bury St Edmunds on Tuesday, October 11, where the outstanding sporting achievements made by sports men, women and juniors in the borough are recognised.
The awards also showcase the huge amount of work that takes place within sport in the borough of St Edmundsbury.
Haverhill Netball Club is one of the teams nominated for this year’s Club of the Year, citing the popular introduction of the junior team as a reason for the nomination.
Frank Watts, chair of the West Suffolk Athletics Club, has been nominated as Unsung Hero for his role in the upkeep and running of the club and his dedication to the sport.
The St Edmundsbury Sports Awards are still looking for more nominations in all categories, particularly for: Coach of the Year, the Individual Performance/Achievement of the Year Award and Triumph Over Adversity category.
Could you be a winner at this year’s sports awards? Does your sports club have an unsung hero? Do you know someone who has dedicated their life to a sport or club locally? Do you know an outstanding local sports man or woman who deserves to be recognised?
