The SJA Team of the Year is determined by a ballot of all SJA members. Each member is allowed to vote just once in the three categories – Sportsman, Sportswoman and Team of the Year – and online voting forms are available now by clicking here, although you might want to wait a little while yet for further performances and to consider further prompt lists from Ian Cole. Here is the most recent Sportswoman candidate list
In the meantime , though, why not go ahead and book your tickets for the awards lunch, to be staged from noon on Wednesday, December 12, at The Brewery, Chiswell Street. Booking forms are available here. And remember – the Â£25 discount on ticket prices is exclusively available to fully paid-up members of the SJA (not bad, considering membership costs at most Â£23), so make sure you join the Association now by clicking here.
