It is our pleasure to announce that nominations are now open for the OxVox Supporter of the Year award for 2022-3. The award commemorates the late Andy (Womble) James, with the blessing of his family. They were keen to be involved and having already discussed it, we were delighted when they agreed that the trophy would affectionately be known as ‘The Womble’.
Please send us your recommendations for supporter of the year by email to email@example.com.
People who have gone above and beyond to support our club, help our fanbase, and contribute to our community. Please nominate someone other than yourself, who you feel is deserving of this recognition. Include their full name, a short paragraph on their ‘achievements’ for the season, and where possible links to any stories or social media connected to anything they have done.
We will create a shortlist and using the bios you create for them, will put it back to the fans to vote for the winner. More than winning, it’s about recognising all of the amazing supporters and their efforts throughout the season. You have until Friday 21 July to get your nominations in and the voting will take place shortly afterwards. The award will take place at the beginning of the season.
As a supporters award we were keen to make it about the fans and so we were excited when we found one of our own to make the trophy itself. It looks fantastic. Paul Smith has been incredibly generous with his time and effort and refused to take a penny for his work. Some of you may already be familiar with his work based around the crest and we can’t thank him enough. We have also been in touch with the club who are keen to help and it has been agreed that, as happened when it was awarded to Michael North, the trophy will be displayed at the training ground, where it will sit with a photo and brief description of the winner’s contribution to both the club and the fanbase. A reminder every day to the players of what this club means to the fans.
