The deadline for nominations to be received by England Boxing is the close of play on Friday 17th March.

Once nominations have closed, winners will then be chosen by a panel made up of members from each of five of England Boxing’s sub-committees (but not board members).

“This is a great opportunity to celebrate those often-unheralded individuals and clubs and their outstanding contributions in our sport,” said Head of Operations, Avoen Perryman.

“There are so many people who do work behind the scenes, and make it possible for boxers of all abilities to ensure their sport, so we know there will be plenty of people who are worthy of recognition via a nomination.”
