Wyre Council is on the hunt for this year’s sporting stars Published Tuesday, 14 May 2019

The Wyre Sports Awards 2019 are now open for nominations. If you know someone who is a sporting star or someone who always gets a group or team motivated then get nominating!

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

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

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.

Clubs, coaches, players, parents, school teachers and friends are asked to nominate people of all ages who deserve to be recognised for their efforts in sport and activity over the last year.

The categories this year are:

  • Volunteer of the year
  • Coach of the year
  • Club of the year
  • Lifetime achievement award
  • Services to underrepresented groups 
  • Community project of the year
  • Young achiever of the year
  • Primary school of the year
  • Secondary school of the year

Carol Southern, Active Lives and Community Engagement Manager at Wyre Council comments, “The annual sports awards are a good opportunity to celebrate sporting achievements in Wyre and for us to thank those involved for their commitment. It’s a chance to celebrate all the talent, dedication and success of those involved, right from people just starting out in schools, up to those who have dedicated their lives to sport.”

The deadline for nominations is Friday 19th July 2019.
