More than 130 nominations have been received for the first Thanet Sports Awards, which have been organised by the Thanet Sports Network.

The sports awards aim to recognise those who have achieved in the last year or who have gone the extra mile in sport in Thanet.

The Thanet Sports Network is a group of public, private and voluntary sector organisations, who are working together to increase sporting opportunities in Thanet. The first sports award ceremony will be held at Margate's Winter Gardens on Wednesday 11 November between 7pm and 9pm, with local and regional sports representatives attending.

Phil Pittock, member of the Thanet Sports Network, said: "We're delighted with both the quantity and quality of the award entries we've received. Considering this is the first year that we've run the Sports Awards, to get more than 130 entries is absolutely superb and just goes to show how much sporting success we have here in Thanet. Everyone involved in the Thanet Sports Network is now really looking forward to the awards ceremony in November and recognising those who have made a great contribution to sport in Thanet over the last year."

The ceremony will see awards handed out in 11 categories, which are Coach of the Year, Club of the Year, Disabled Sportsperson of the Year, Individual Sporting Achievement, Long Service Award, Unsung Hero, Sportsman and Sportswoman of the Year, Team and Young Team of the Year and Young Sportsperson of the Year.

Sponsors of the Thanet Sports Awards are Thanet Distict Council, Kent County Council, Orbit South Housing, Skip 2BFit, Pfizer, Embroid Me, the Eastern and Coastal Kent PCT, the KM Group, Thanet Leisureforce and DJ Ellis.
