Ben Field, manager of Sport Pembrokeshire, said a number of excellent nominations have already been received.

“If you’d like to nominate someone for an award, please make sure you contact us by the end of Sunday,” said Ben.

Since the first Sport Pembrokeshire Awards in 2007, an annual gala presentation ceremony has always taken place at Folly Farm on the last Friday in November.

“The 2020 award-winners will be announced on 25th November in the Western Telegraph and across Sport Pembrokeshire social media platforms.”
