Deadline for Sports Awards extended because of holiday season

The deadline for nominations for the 2019 Derby City Sport Forum Awards has been extended because of the holiday season.

We are aware lots of people have been away this month so we are giving everyone a week extra to get their nominations in. The deadline is now midnight on Saturday 7th September.

Nominations have been steady but a couple of clubs have been in touch to say their people are away and would nominate, so the committee decided to extend the deadline for all those in that boat.

Awards are given annually in recognition of the achievements of Derby‚Äôs dedicated sports people. They will take place on Thursday 10th October in the Jacob Rivers Room of the Council House. It’s a great opportunity to celebrate the sporting achievements in Derby, please nominate anyone you think is worthy of an award this year. You’ll need to move fast as nominations close on 31st August 2019!
