A glittering awards evening will be held at Edge Hill university on April 19 to celebrate those people who go the extra mile in our sporting community.

And now is the time to get your nominations in.
With the event looming ever closer the Advertiser office has already been flooded with nominations.
But there is still time to send your recommendations in to give your heroes the opportunity to emulate previous winners.
