UNSUNG heroes from the town's rugby league community are being sought for special awards.

Nominees are wanted for the Heart and Sole Awards, given to people who have devoted their lives to rugby league in Warrington.

Each recipient will have their name immortalised in a footprint, which will be permanently displayed in the South Stand at the Halliwell Jones Stadium.

Warrington Wolves Charitable Foundation director Neil Kelly said: "It's about people who have given their time to the sport and people who love the game in the town.

"We want to recognise people whose passion is rugby league and the stalwarts of the game and we've got a few nominations in already.

"What we want to do is embed these people into the stadium - we have the heritage timeline but we couldn't have all of that if it wasn't for these people who are just living their ordinary lives, loving what they do and loving rugby league."

Last year's winners included Mike Cooper, who has commentated on Warrington Wolves matches for hospital radio for more than four decades having also been a referee, PE teacher and stadium announcer at Wilderspool in the 1980s.

Pam Caley won a Heart and Sole Award for her service as a committee member of children's fan club the Wolfpack and running coaches to away games for more than 20 years.

Also picking up a prize was Warren Whalley, who has been involved with Woolston Rovers for decades as a player, treasurer and secretary and also founded Warrington Wizards.

This year's winners will be announced during the Warrington Man of Steel Awards at the Halliwell Jones Stadium on Saturday, November 11.
