We are delighted to reveal who has made it through to our big night as finalists in the Melton Times Sports Awards for 2018.
After agonising decisions over who to take through to the final three in each of the 13 award categories open to your nominations, our judges have also selected the winner in each.
They will be announced in grand Oscars ceremony-style at our big sports awards evening which takes place at Melton Mowbray Market’s banqueting suite on Thursday, February 28.
Each of our finalists will receive a ticket to the awards ceremony, with two tickets per team finalist, and additional tickets are on sale.
The evening will be hosted by experienced BBC Radio Lincolnshire presenter Melvyn Prior who returns as compere for the second year running.
Doors will open at 6pm with awards due to get under way at 8pm after a fish and chip supper.
