The council hopes its awards night can be held on Wednesday, March 30 at the Cupar Corn Exchange but has already formed backup plans to host it online if guidance doesn’t allow.

The evening will celebrate those who have helped support and develop amateur sport across the area.

Clubs, groups or individuals are invited to make nominations for the awards. The categories this year have changed to reflect the challenges sport has faced during 2021 and are as follows: Club project award – awarded to the club that progressed and enhanced its development for the good of its members, allowing the club to recover, look forward and flourish after lockdown.
