Citations should draw attention to the nominee’s work for the club or league as organiser, official, team manager or helper showing the breadth of tasks and/ or the time they have been carried out. Where the nominee has delivered great service “against all odds” the challenging circumstances should be described to do justice to the award.

The officers of BATFL will decide the winner.
