Time is running out to nominate teams and individuals for the 2015 Daventry District Sports Awards.

The awards aim to celebrate the wealth of sporting talent in the district, from athletes succeeding on the field of play to those who work tirelessly behind the scenes to help their club, school, or sport in general.

Run by Everyone Active, in partnership with Daventry District Council, the awards will be presented at a formal evening celebration held at Daventry Leisure Centre, in Lodge Road, Daventry, on Thursday, October 22.

People have until midnight this Friday (September 18) to submit their nominations.

There are categories for the best sportsman and sportswoman, community club, volunteer, team, coach and disabled sportsperson, as well as awards recognising young achievers, a lifetime contribution to sport, and the best sporting primary and secondary schools.
