This year’s Awards are being held on Monday 5th December once again back at the Civic Centre.

Do you know a person, a team or a club deserving recognition for their sporting achievements this past twelve months? Maybe a relative or a neighbour? If you are involved in sport in any way perhaps you are aware of an individual or a team or a club that ought to be considered? If so, please consider making a nomination.

The hunt is now on to find Mansfield’s next big sporting stars to follow in the footsteps of local sport heroes, Rebecca Adlington, Ollie Hynd, Sam Hynd, Charlotte Henshaw, Ben & Tom Birchall, Elliot Clogg, and the many others who have represented Mansfield nationally and internationally winning world titles and Commonwealth and Olympic medals.
