WITH the amazing spectacle of the Olympics and Paralympics, 2012 has been a memorable year for sport. But what has it meant for you and your club?

Rugby’s annual awards will again recognise outstanding achievements and dedication throughout the year - and nominations for worthy winners are now invited.

Rugby Borough Council are organising the awards for the 18th time, supported by the Rugby Advertiser and Rugby FM.

After the success of the 2011 evening, the presentations will be again be held at The Temple Speech Room at Rugby School - on February 20, 2013.

And you have until January 11 to submit your entries.

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

The Coach of the Year award is the perfect way of showing your coach or manager just how much they are appreciated.

And Rugby’s Club of the Year 2012 should have celebrated success in sport and development initiatives.

Do you know an Unsung Hero Volunteer, whose hard work might otherwise go unrecognised? Or someone who deserves the Lifetime Achievement Award, for their years of dedication?

The Lion Geoff Thompson Young Volunteer of the Year Award will be presented in memory of the Rugby Rokeby Lion.

It runs alongside the Simon Warwood Memorial Award for Young Team of the Year.

Also for under 18s the Excellence in Sport awards for those at national level include £100 towards training or equipment.

Finally for individual achievers we are seeking the senior Sportsman and Sportswoman of the Year, who for whom 2012 was one to remember.
