The clock is ticking for nominations for the prestigious Mansfield Sports Recognition Awards 2014.

Mansfield District Council, in association with the Armchair Club and the Chad, is seeking nominations before the deadline of Friday November 14.

A total of 11 awards are up for grabs at this year’s presentation evening, which will take place on Monday December 8 at John Fretwell Sporting Complex, Sookholme, Mansfield, from 7pm to 9pm.

For the first time, the junior sportsperson of the year award has been split into two age categories due to the large number of high quality entries in previous years.

Awards for those aged under 15 and those aged 15 to 17 will enable more young people to have their achievements recognised.

All nominees receive a certificate in recognition of their contribution to the great sporting heritage in Mansfield District.

Entry forms are available from sports clubs and leisure centres across the District, or by contacting Sports Facilitator Martin Cook at the District Council on 01623 463 026 or mcook@mansfield.gov.uk.

Alternatively, you can fill in a nomination form online at www.mansfield.gov.uk/nominate.

Nominees must either live or pursue their sport within the Mansfield District.

A photograph of the nominee/s should be sent via email to mcook@mansfield.gov.uk for use at the awards presentation event.

Tickets for the awards ceremony are £5 for adults and £2.50 for juniors and are available by contacting Martin Cook.
