Have your say

Today we can announce who has made it through as finalists for the 2016 Melton Times Sports Awards.

As well as naming the top three in each category, the judges have also selected the winners, each of whom will be announced at our big awards night on Thursday, June 30.

But the destiny of our two top awards is down to you.

It will be your votes which decide who wins our coveted Sports Personality and Junior Sports Personality of the Year accolades.

We have drawn up a shortlist of three contenders for both of these awards (right) and you simply pick your favourites and vote.

You can read their citations online in our dedicated sports awards section at www.meltontimes.co.uk (via the sport homepage)

You can vote by filling in the coupon here, or online.

The winners will be those with the most votes before the deadline at midnight on Thursday, June 23.

All of our finalists will receive tickets to the awards ceremony, two each for individual awards and four for team awards.

The evening, which we hope will include guests bound for this year’s Olympics and Paralympics, will be held at Melton Market’s banqueting suite.

We are delighted it will be hosted once more by TV sports broadcaster and friend of the awards, Ivan Gaskell.

Additional tickets are on sale priced at £15, which includes a summer buffet.

Doors open at 6pm with awards due to get under way at about 8pm.
