And you have until Friday, January 11 to submit your entries.

There are nine categories which will honour both success on the field and those involved behind the scenes.

Last year the Lifetime Achivement Award went to Ian Randle (pictured above) for his dedication to cricket - and there must be many more club stalwarts worthy of a nomination this time.
