So, good that he has been nominated, not so that it hasn't led to an award (yet). Perhaps a constituent on here could get on the case with Sir Alan's successor (if that's how it really works)?
I'm not sure "works" is entirely the right word. I emailed and wrote to Dippy Duncan - didn't even get an acknowledgment.

I think Shaun Gibson sent in nomination papers some time ago.
I believe too that Tigers should follow Exeters example and use the £350,000 Saracens fine for charitable causes and Matt's foundation should be the first call, Exeter has a "Exeter Chiefs Foundation" presumably Tigers could use that route too.
It is a long battle to get New Year Honours and you need a strong promoter, who is this Shaun Gibson?? He is not on the board or in Government, you might as well use Prince Andrew!! But we need to get MH recognised so start the campaign now for NY 2021. :smt023

Shaun is obsessive about Leicester Tigers and was the 2015/2016 Tigers fan of the year. Look for a man in a Tigers' blazer at virtually every game!

All in favour of the advertising space being donated to Matt.

The Sarries fine is probably needed elsewhere to secure the clubs finances, regretfully!

Just a thought - instead of what looks like desperation on the cover of the lap tops the team coaches use (‚your brand name here‘ or whatever it says) and get seen on TV, why don‘t we use the Matt Hampson web site address? Surely we are a big enough club (OK, fallen on hard times on the pitch) that we could be a bit like Barcelona FC and not just go for the money but be somewhat more altruistic.

And another thing - why hasn‘t Matt got at least an MBE? To my way of thinking he deserves a knighthood, not just a minor gong.
its easy to be more altruistic when Nike are paying you nearly £150m a year to provide your kits, of and Barca allowed themselves to be sponsored by Qatar

Thanks for that Strawclearer I will lookout for him! However to start a campaign for Matt we need several big names not an obsessive. We need Martin Johnson,Lord Digby, Sir Clive Woodward, Eddie Jones, Cockers, Ben Kay & Healey with support from BT Sport + Flatman & C5 etc to spread the word and get the show on the road, not for a man that might be mistaken for an ice cream seller - sorry!
The time to start is now for Decembers selection. :smt023

To describe Shaun as obsessive does not do him the he deserves. He is passionate about Tigers and cares greatly about the club and represents the supporters as a member of the fans forum. A true gent and attends most Tigers games, home and away.

Message from Shaun:
I've sent a nomination every year for at least 6 years.
Started a facd book group Started a petition twice.
Nobody joins either.Less than 800 joined each even when I shared it on Facebook & Twitter tagging in players,charities & anyone I could think of.
I've got the ex lord Leightenant of Leicestershire & the new one.
Also the Chief constable is on board.
Also Tommy Causton of the Hambo foundation.
Simon Cohen told me the wheels are moving on this.
Tommy confirmed it too.
Maybe you could let them on the forum know that I've done this.
It takes weeks every year for me to do this but I feel he desperately deserves something.

Thanks for posting Tb. I asked Shaun to let me/us have the details so that we can see where we can help. We should all do all we can!
