In every sport and in every club you will probably find that person who behind the scenes ensures everything gets done.
They go about their task but few even know about it. However, we at The Southland Times want that to change through our Legends of Sport series.
We want to acknowledge those people and share their stories as to how they unselfishly go about keeping their particular sport or club ticking.
It might be sorting the club’s finances, organising fundraisers, ensuring the clubrooms are tidy each week, running the bar, recruiting players and officials, organising and cleaning uniforms the list goes on. All those far-from-glamorous jobs that go with running a sport but before now have not created headlines.
To ensure these stories are told we need your help. We need you to nominate people who are in unpaid positions at Southland sports organisations or clubs who deserve to be acknowledged through our Legends of Sport series.
If you believe you have a Legend of Sport in your sport/club who has gone about their business with little glory please let us know. Send us a background on what they have done for their club or sport and the impact of their tireless work. Email firstname.lastname@example.org with your nomination.
