Nominations have opened for one of the most eagerly-awaited events on the local sporting calendar.
The 2019 Sport Pembrokeshire Awards are your chance to nominate sportspeople, coaches, teachers and organisers involved in sport in the County.
“There’s been a huge rise in sport participation and interest in recent years in Pembrokeshire and some inspirational sporting successes,” said Ben Field, manager of Sport Pembrokeshire.
“This is a great chance to recognise that success – both on the local and national stage – and to say thank you to all those people in grass roots sports who make it all possible.
“If you know of a sportsperson or a team which has excelled over the last year, or somebody who is dedicated to coaching or organising local sport, then why not nominate them for an award?”
The deadline for nominations is Sunday, 13th October and last year’s nominees are welcome again.

· Coach of the Year
