THE popular Wakefield District Sports Awards is once again poised to recognise the district’s amazing sporting talent.

Over the years we have honoured an incredibly diverse number of local amateur sports stars.

From junior and open age rugby and football teams to international swimmers, gymnasts and athletes, with a few boxers, weightlifters, squash players and anglers thrown in along the way.

All our winners (all based in the Wakefield Metropolitan District Council area) have been nominated by the public, and now it’s your chance once again to put forward your favourite local sports stars to win the accolades in 2012.

This year’s awards have opened and you can now nominate online by clicking here.

You can also vote on the websites of our sister titles the Pontefract and Castleford Express and the Hemsworth and South Elmsall Express.

The deadline to nominate your sports star or team is Monday, April 23, 2012.

A select panel of judges will then decide the top three in each category.

Those nominated will be invited to the sports awards presentation evening, to be held at the Cedar Court Hotel in Wakefield, on Monday, May 28, 2012.

See this week’s Wakefield Express for all the latest sports news from around the district.
