THE countdown is on to a special evening celebrating the unsung heroes of grass roots sport in Trafford.

Nominations have closed for this year’s Trafford Sports Awards and the winners will be announced at a ceremony at Hotel Football on Friday October 4.

An independent panel of judges will select the winners in each of the eight categories - changing lifestyle recognition, community initiative, unsung hero, school commitment to PE and school sport, volunteer of the year, young sports achiever of the year, workforce advocate of the year and community club /group of the year.

Andy Worthington, who chairs the Trafford Sport and Physical Activity Partnership, said: “The Trafford Sports Awards are all about finding local heroes who have made an outstanding contribution to their community.

“This year’s event promises to be a marvellous celebration of sport and physical activity in Trafford, with our sporting heroes the glittering stars of the show. 

“We have so many reasons to be proud of our sporting community here in Trafford and we are all looking forward to recognising their achievements on the night of the awards.”.

Trafford’s winners will go on to represent the borough at the Greater Manchester Sports Awards later this year.

And added: “There they will rub shoulders with many famous sporting personalities and national athletes. These true sporting heroes will be our ambassadors, their presence reinforcing all that is great about sport and physical activity in Trafford.”
