Oxfordshire Sports Awards 2012: Andy Triggs Hodge nominated
Olympic gold medallist Andy Triggs Hodge is among the star names nominated in this year's annual Oxfordshire Sports Awards.
Hodge who won rowing gold in the men's four in August is nominated in the sportsman of the year category along with Lawrence Clarke and Jack Brooks.
Paralympic gold medallist Lily van der Broecke is also nominated in the sportswoman of the year category.
And after winning promotion to Blue Square Bet North, Oxford City find themselves among those nominated for team of the year.
Manager Mike Ford said the award was fully deserved after their exploits last season.
"It's a great honour," Ford told BBC Radio Oxford.
"I'm a firm believer that if you work hard then you get the rewards and just to be nominated alongside some fantastic teams is an honour in itself."
Oxford City are up against Bicester Hockey Club Ladies first team and Oxfordshire Ladies Cricket team and Ford admits his side are up against some tough opposition.
"I'm sure whoever win will go away worthy of the trophy," he said.
"This is the biggest season in the club's history and we have worked so hard to get into the Conference North. To stay in the league is my sole objective."
