Do you know a sporting champion, a top team or a behind-the-scenes hero whose efforts deserve recognition?

If so then why not nominate them in the Harborough Sports Awards 2015?

This is the 14th year the Mail has staged the sports awards, which recognise the sporting achievements of the special people and groups within our area.

We want to give public recognition to the stars of the grassroots sporting scene in the district and acknowledge the people who deserve an accolade for the tremendous effort they put into their sport.

The presentation evening will be held at The Three Swans Hotel in Market Harborough, on Thursday, November 19.

The Mail is again grateful to the event’s main sponsor, Market Harborough Building Society .

There are ten categories in the awards which are now open. They are:

Sportsman (The Angel Hotel)

Team of the Year

Sportswoman of the Year (Stanair),

Sports Leader of the Year

Disabled Sports Personality (Spire Homes).
