The event also honoured individuals, clubs and businesses who work tirelessly to support their local community.

Pete Mason, Chair of Preston Sports Forum, said: “We are delighted that the Preston Sports Awards are back. After a difficult couple of years, we wanted to ensure that Preston clubs, volunteers and athletes didn’t miss out on receiving well-deserved recognition for their dedication to sports in Preston.

“We received some fantastic nominations and faced some difficult choices, so a big congratulations to the winners, but also to everyone who was nominated. Each of the nominees are winners in their own right and should be very proud of what they have achieved.”

Councillor Jennifer Mein, Cabinet Member at Preston City Council for Health and Wellbeing said: “Thank you to everyone who has enabled us to host this fantastic event that showcases wonderful sporting achievements in Preston.”

Councillor Neil Darby, Mayor of Preston, said: “Our city has a rich sporting history and it’s important that we continue to keep engaging young people and encouraging more people to enjoy an active lifestyle, whatever their age, to help and support people’s mental health and wellbeing.

“The ceremony is all about local talent and recognising those in grassroots sport who provide essential opportunities for local people to get involved. Thank you to all those who volunteer their time to make this happen.”

Winners from each category will be put forward as the Preston winners for the Active Lancashire Awards 2022, which will take place on 18 November.
