BBC presenter to host Lincolnshire Sports Awards

Sports awards: BBC’s Football Focus presenter, Dan Walker, will host Lincolnshire Sports Awards.

Dan Walker, Presenter of BBC’s Football Focus, will host this year’s Lincolnshire Sports Awards on November 17 at the Lincolnshire Showground’s Epic Centre.

A football pundit, Walker is a regular face across BBC sports coverage, also co-hosting golf’s The Open Championship and reporting on Rugby’s Six Nations competition, Wimbledon and horse racing.

Walker is looking forward to the Lincolnshire awards that remind him sport isn’t just about the Wayne Rooneys of the world.

“There are hundreds of sportsmen and women achieving wonderful things in their own field and it will be brilliant to be a part of that celebration,” Walker said.

The annual awards celebrate sportspeople, coaches and volunteers from across the county and there will be 11 Lincolnites represented later this month.

Marc Rhodes, Events Officer at Lincolnshire Sports Partnership, is delighted Dan Walker can be a part of one of the county’s annual sporting highlights.

Rhodes said: “The event is a key event in our diary to recognise sporting excellence in our county and we look forward to working with Dan on the evening and in the future.”

Tickets to the event are still available online for £30 per person.
