Have your say

It’s time for the big reveal as today we unveil our full list of nominees for the Melton Times Sports Awards for 2019.

We would like say a huge thank-you, once again, for taking the time to send in your nominations with another phenomenal response in quantity and quality.

Judging will now begin to whittle them down to just three finalists in 13 of our 16 awards, before deciding who will join our impressive roll call of winners.

The finalists will be announced in next week’s Melton Times and online at www.meltontimes.co.uk from Thursday.

All finalists will be sent an invitation to attend our gala awards night at Scalford Hall Hotel on Friday, February 28.

The judges will also draw up shortlists for our two top awards – the Sports Personality of the Year and Junior Sports Personality of the Year.

They will also be announced in next Thursday’s edition and online, when voting will open for you to decide the winners of our two blue riband awards.

Further to that, the judges will also choose the winner of our Special Recognition Award, who will be announced on the night.

The awards evening will be hosted by sports broadcaster Ivan Gaskell (Football Focus, Match of the Day), when all of the winners will be revealed in classic Oscars-style.

Melton Times sports editor Chris Harby said: “I’d like to thank everyone who has been inspired to make a nomination and congratulate everyone who has made it this far.

“As always, there are a lot of familiar names, but also plenty of new ones which shows how popular the awards remain in the community.

“To be recognised by your peers in this way is a success in itself, and I’m sure the judges will have a tough task in deciding who will make it through to our awards night.

“I would also like to say a huge thank-you to our loyal sponsors for their support once again.

“Without them we wouldn’t be able to put on the night and pay tribute to our local stars.”

More details about the evening itself and how to buy additional tickets will be confirmed next week.
