Do you know someone who is a sporting star? Someone who always gets a group or team motivated? Then get nominating!

Wyre is looking for sports personalities to showcase the borough’s sporting passion and hopefully go forward to represent us at this year’s Lancashire Sport Awards.

Wyre's Sports Awards celebrate excellence and dedication in local sport and recognise the coaches, volunteers and clubs who have made a real difference.

All the winners will go forward to represent Wyre at the Lancashire Sports Awards, the largest celebration of amateur sport in the county, which takes place in November.

The awards celebrate sporting achievements across the borough and pay tribute to those who have shown commitment and enthusiasm in order to achieve sporting excellence, and to those who have dedicated their time and efforts to individuals or clubs.
