THE hugely 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 along the way.
All our winners (all based in the Wakefield MDC area) have been nominated by the public, and now it’s your chance once again to put forward your favourite local sports stars.
From Friday, February 24, 2012, you will be able to vote online at www.wakefieldexpress.co.uk and from next week on the websites of our sister titles the Pontefract and Castleford Express and the Hemsworth and South Elmsall Express.
The deadline for entries is Monday, April 23, 2012. A panel of judges will then decide the top three in each category, who will then be invited to the gala sports awards presentation evening at the Cedar Court Hotel, Wakefield, on Monday, May 28, 2012.
