Voting for the Herts Sports Partnership Lockdown Awards is now open, with more than 100 sports clubs across Hertfordshire nominated for their lockdown efforts.

The awards are a one-off ceremony to highlight the achievements of Hertfordshire’s sporting community during the coronavirus lockdown.

There are five categories and voting is open until Sunday, September 6.

Among those nominated for ‘Most Inspiring Club’ are Stevenage Football Club and Stevenage FC Foundation, who played a vital part in the town with their Coronavirus Community Careline.

North Herts Crusaders RLFC have also been nominated for ‘Best Use of Lockdown’.

Last, but certainly not least, ‘Best Lockdown Coach’ could be awarded to any one of the 34 finalists.
