The SPL will run an annual special award in recognition of the outstanding work carried out by Simon Hedley. Nominations will be called for from all age groups, member clubs and the SPL Management Committee with the spirit of the award based on outstanding contribution either through adversity or long term commitment.

Recipients can be either an individual, group of people or team, for work on or off the field including club/team/league administrators/coaches or other volunteers who work tirelessly for the benefit of others.

Recipients must be members of the SPL or a member club of the SPL and have a proven history of participation within the league.

A panel to select the winners will consist of at least 3 league officers, 1 age group secretary and a volunteer from the membership. Dates for nomination will be set by the management committee.

There will be no fixed number of awards, this will allow flexibility in line with the ethos of Simon Hedley.  Simply as many or as few that are deemed necessary will be awarded.

The awards will be presented at the annual awards day or at a time deemed appropriate by the Management Committee.
