Tomorrow is your last chance to apply for sport funding from the Leg-Up Club.

The group are on the search for sporting talent which they can help reach its potential.

Twelve months ago the group of anonymous friends launched their search for promising athletes in the area... hoping to give them some much-needed financial backing.

Archer Amy Gott and clay piegeon shooter Marcus Horry both impressed the panel so much last year that they split the £1,600 pot.

The Leg-Up Club are again keen to hear from sportspeople of all ages who believe this year’s purse of £2,000 could make a difference to them - be it for equipment, coaching or even travel costs.

The group have teamed up with The Standard, and are appealing for anyone interested to get in contact.

To put yourself forward, or to nominate a sporting talent, email duncan.browne@jpress.co.uk, outlining details about the individual, their sport, age, and what the money would be put towards.

The closing date for entries is December 31.
