Last year’s Sportsman of the Year, Liam Pitchford, will be in contention again this year, following an impressive performance at the UK championships that saw him reach the semi-finals.
Collecting the award on his behalf last year, his father said: “Liam left for Germany aged 17. He’s given up a lot and you could say he’s missed out on some things but he’s achieved so much more. He’s put the effort in and still has things he wants to achieve.”
Last year we received a great many nominations for hundreds of deserving candidates. The past year has seen more sporting success for Chesterfield’s teams and schools, as well as dedication and hard work from coaches and volunteers. If you think this hard work needs to be recognised, send your nominations in before the closing date on Monday 1st August.
