People across Daventry District are being encouraged to nominate their local sporting heroes for an award.

Back for its 16th year, the annual Daventry District Sports Awards aim to celebrate the wealth of sporting talent in Daventry District.

Club members, volunteers, individual athletes and supporters are encouraged to nominate individuals and teams for their achievements over the last year.

They will be presented at a formal evening celebration held at Daventry Leisure Centre, in Lodge Road, Daventry on Thursday, 18 October 2018.

Councillor Alan Hills, Community, Culture and Leisure Portfolio Holder at Daventry District Council, said: “Daventry District boasts a very active sporting scene with some outstanding talent, and these awards aim to recognise the wealth of sporting talent and achievements from the many clubs, teams, volunteers and individuals involved.

“This is an excellent opportunity to give recognition to a family member, fellow athlete, club member, club or local group who you feel deserves a public accolade for their achievements, so please get in touch and submit your nominations.”

  • Community Club of the Year
