NOMINATIONS have opened for the 2011 Sport Pembrokeshire Awards – your chance to celebrate and recognise sporting achievement in the county.

Sportspeople of all ages, as well as coaches, teachers and organisers can be nominated.

“If you know someone who has excelled in sport over the last year, or who has freely given their time to coaching and organising grass roots sport, then why not nominate them for an award?” said Cllr Rob Lewis, cabinet member for sports and leisure.

The award categories are:

  • Coach of the year
  • Female sporting achievement
  • Male sporting achievement
  • Boys (U16) sporting achievement
  • Girls (U16) sporting achievement
  • Disability sport award
  • Junior (U16) disability sport award
  • Unsung hero
  • Club organiser of the year
  • Team achievement of the year
  • Junior (U16) team achievement
  • Contribution to school sport.

All nominees, and guests, will be invited to the annual Sport Pembrokeshire Awards ceremony in November.

The awards are sponsored by Sport Pembrokeshire – the sports development arm of Pembrokeshire County Council, Folly Farm, Valero, Radio Pembrokeshire, and the Western Telegraph.

“These awards are our chance to celebrate sporting success in the county,” said Ben Field, sports development manager at Sport Pembrokeshire.

“It’s our opportunity to congratulate the county’s top performers, while also recognising the hard work of coaches, teachers, club organisers and volunteers who make it all possible – and don’t forget that last year’s nominees are welcome again.”

To nominate someone you think deserves recognition collect a form from Sport Pembrokeshire at County Hall, Haverfordwest, or phone 01437 776191 to be posted or emailed a copy.

The Sport Pembrokeshire Awards 2011 will take place at Folly Farm, Begelly on Friday, November 25th.
