Community awards open for 2011/12 season

The Barclays Community Sports Awards have re-opened for nominations for the 2011/12 season.

The award, now in its second season, recognises the outstanding achievements of individuals that use sport to benefit communities across the UK.

People like Simon O’Brien-Ellington, who won the award last December for his work at Club Website side Ipswich Charioteers Wheelchair FC – the club he co-founded and for whom he acts as secretary, website administrator and first aider.

The award, delivered in partnership between Barclays Spaces for Sports, the Premier League’s Creating Chances programme and the Football Foundation, is now on the lookout for more unsung heroes from the grassroots football community.

Each monthly winner of the award receives £1,000 for their group or organisation, a limited edition trophy and is entered into the end-of-season award to win a further £5,000, all donated by Barclays Spaces for Sports.

The end-of-season award winner also receives a VIP trip to London to receive their award from ambassador and head of the judging panel, Gareth Southgate.

So if you know anyone who used the positive power of sport to make a real and lasting difference in their community, then nominate them today!

    I would like to nominate Stewart barber as he has put alot of time and effort in getting the ‘northern dons’ football team up and running. It was a hard season last year but he never gave up and he keeps the team moral up all the time, through good and bad hes always got a smile on his face
