Nominations are now open for the fourth annual Bradford Sports Awards, which will take place at the Northern Commercials Stadium on Thursday 7th March 2019.
Since 2016, Bradford has celebrated sporting success and unsung heroes in the district. The awards evening has attracted over 350 attendees in each of the last three years, all turning out to recognise the efforts of players, coaches, volunteers and administrators.
With eighteen awards up for grabs, people are being encouraged to nominate for any of the following categories; Young Achievers (Under 18), Senior Achievers (Over 18), Active Achievers and Outstanding Contribution. This year also sees the introduction of a ‘Teacher’ award in the Outstanding Contribution category.
Nominees must have been born, lived, trained or represented an organisation within the City of Bradford Metropolitan District Council boundaries.
Karate star Katelyn Entwistle; members of the Bradford Barracudas Dragon Boat Club; and Katy Greenwood, captain of Bradford City Disability FC Ladies, joined Wayne Jacobs, the Chair of Active Bradford, at the home of the Bantams to mark the announcement.
Wayne commented: “The awards mean a lot to this city. There’s a lot of people achieving wonderful things across our district and it’s only right that these achievements are honoured.
“The awards cover everything from professional to community sport; youth to adults; male, female and disability – everything that’s been achieved in sport, including volunteering.
“Whether it’s family, friends, colleagues or just someone you recognise from the media, make sure you nominate them.”
