Sean Jarvis, Commercial Director at Huddersfield Town Football Club commented:
“We are delighted to launch this year’s awards following the success of the inaugural event in 2015. The awards are a real celebration of local sport and chance to thank those who make sporting successes of our local clubs and societies. Last year’s event was a huge success and we will be making it bigger and better this year. I would like to urge any of our local sports clubs to enter this year’s awards as there are so many people out there who deserve to be recognised for their efforts.”

The panel of judges will be announced in the coming weeks and is set to include some of the biggest names in their respective fields, all with a connection to the Kirklees area.
