Jimmy Khan, UCLan lead for sport and community development, said: ‘I’m looking forward to this year’s event, we are going back to Deepdale, where it all started off for the Sports Awards, due to the closure of the Guild Hall. Once again, we will be celebrating the sporting endeavours of Prestonians young and old.
