Entries now open for the 12 categoriesNominations are open for this year’s Exeter Sports Awards which takes place on the 26th April at St James Park.
The awards are an annual opportunity to celebrate and reward the inspiration, glory and grassroots greatness that is rich in Exeter’s sporting community. This year's revamped sports awards ceremony starts earlier, giving more focus to the award winners.
Categories range from Coach of the year to best sporting moment, so if you know someone that has excelled in sport this year, please visit exeterexpressandecho.co.uk/sportsawards and nominate them today.
Exeter City chairman Julian Tagg said he was pleased to partner up with the Echo and to be able to recognise the sporting talent the city has to offer.
"We're delighted to be part of the sports awards," Tagg said. "There's some phenomenal work across the city that goes unrecognised. The award committee's aim is to try and find causes that raise the profile of the city and, at the same time, supports the plethora of the volunteers that work so hard, either for athletes or as support behind them. The club has the badge of the city and we take it seriously. Community support is really what the club is all about."
There are also two new categories added this year. The Best Sporting Moment category will recognise a memorable event that occurred in the last 12 months. The Eamonn Dolan Award will be given to a nominee from the categories the judges feel deserve extra recognition.
Express & Echo editor Patrick Phelvin said: "I'm delighted to have partnered up with Exeter City for these awards. We wish to recognise the excellent sporting achievements that occur in this city, and I encourage people to get their nominations in early."
