Club members, athletes and supporters are encouraged to nominate teams and individuals for achievements they have made in their chosen sport or through their work to help their club, school or local community.

Nominations can be made for the following categories: Local Sportsman of the Year; Local Sportswoman of the Year; Volunteer of the Year; Team of the Year; Coach of the Year; Young Sportsman of the Year; Young Sportswoman of the Year; Community Club of the Year; Primary School of the Year; Secondary School of the Year; Long Time Contribution to Sport; Young Leader of the Year; Disabled Sports Achiever; and Get Active Award.

“This is an excellent chance to showcase the great sporting talent that the district has to offer,” said Cllr Alan Hills, community, culture and leisure portfolio holder at Daventry District Council. “It’s also a fabulous opportunity to give recognition to a family member, fellow athlete, club member, club or local group who you feel deserves a public pat on the back for their achievements.”

The deadline for nominations is September 12. The awards will be presented at a formal evening celebration to be held at Daventry Leisure Centre on October 16.
