The 10th Sport Pembrokeshire Awards have attracted a record number of nominations.
More than 150 sportspeople, coaches, volunteers and clubs have been nominated across the county.
The three finalists in each category will be revealed on November 16, with the overall winners announced at a 10th birthday gala ceremony at Folly Farm on November 25.
The awards are sponsored by Valero, the Western Telegraph, Folly Farm, and Radio Pembrokeshire.
Clr. Elwyn Morse, cabinet member for culture, sport and leisure, said the organisers were delighted to receive so many nominations.
“The popularity of the awards is not only a reflection of the exceptional sporting talent within Pembrokeshire, but also of the thriving nature of grass-roots sport,” he said.
“There is a huge amount of people who give their time freely to support community sports clubs in Pembrokeshire and the awards are an opportunity for others to show how much they appreciate their work.”
Ben Field, manager of Sport Pembrokeshire, the sports development team at Pembrokeshire County Council, said the annual awards have become a significant fixture in the local sporting calendar.
“It’s a great chance to get together and celebrate outstanding achievements and recognise the hard work that goes on behind the scenes,” he said. “I’m grateful to the main sponsors for their continuing support of the event.”
All nominees are invited, along with guests, to attend the Sport Pembrokeshire Awards gala ceremony on the November 25.
If any other member of the County’s sporting fraternity would like to come, please contact Sport Pembrokeshire on 01437 776191 soon, as places are limited.
