Sport Pembrokeshire is very pleased to announce that nominations are now open for the Sport Pembrokeshire Awards 2021.
The team is also delighted to confirm that following last year’s virtual ceremony, this year’s event will take place at Folly Farm, albeit on a smaller scale than usual.
“It’s been a tricky time for sport along with everything else, so this year’s awards are a great opportunity to recognise all the good things that have been happening despite the difficulties,” said Cllr Paul Miller, Cabinet Member for Economy, Tourism, Leisure and Culture.
“We’ll be celebrating sport at every level – from grass roots coaching to volunteering and club organisation to successes by individuals and teams.
“Lots of hard work has taken place behind the scenes over the past year - from clubs adapting their training sessions and facilities to make them safe, to sportspeople who have had to change to a different way of training and have still gone on to achieve success in their field.
“We’re looking forward to hearing about lots of great stories and achievements, so please make sure you get your nominations in.”
Nominations close on 10th October and last year’s nominees are welcome again.

· Coach of the Year
