Both the United Kingdom Armed Forces (formerly Combined Services) and the Royal Navy Sports Control Boards have annual awards ceremonies. The categories are sports man of the year, sports woman of the year, sports official of the year and team of the year.  Each year the entries are whittled down to three nominations per category who are invited to the awards ceremony.  The UKAF Awards are usually held in London whilst the last few RN awards have been presented onboard HMS Victory.

The UKAF Rugby Referees award the Jim Lees Memorial Trophy for referee of the year . . .
