I never cease to be amazed by the wealth of talent in the North East and the unbounded passion for sport. Each year the quality of nominations increase and the final decisions are harder to reach.
I am sure you know of someone without whom your sport would not be the same. Someone who goes that extra mile, who embodies North East sporting passion. This is your opportunity to ensure they get the recognition they deserve so please get your nominations to us by 23rd October 2015.
I look forward to celebrating North East sport at the 2015 BBC North East Sports Awards, on Wednesday 25th November 2015, and receiving your nominations.
