The Chair of the Town Council’s Community Resources Committee, Councillor Billy Blanchard-Cooper said: “The Sports Awards not only recognise the dedicated sports people of Littlehampton but also the people behind the clubs and organisations that work tirelessly to support our local clubs and ensure their success. It has been a great year for our sports clubs in particular the Football Club so make sure you get nominating so achievements can be further recognised.”

The closing date will be the 31 July 2022 and nominations will be considered by a judging panel with the winners announced at an awards ceremony hosted by former England football player, Steve Hodge, on 3 October.

Go on, get behind your sporting star from Littlehampton who has excelled at local, national or even international level.
