FA and McDonald’s Grassroots Football Awards

Recommended Posts

Our season may be over but there are many, many volunteers in our clubs who deserve recognition.  Details below:


The nomination window for this year’s FA and McDonald’s Grassroots Football Awards is now OPEN! Nominate Here - http://www.cornwallfa.com/news/2020/mar/26/2020-grassroots-football-awards-nominations-now-open

With all football paused for the time being, now is a great time to spread some positivity and start nominating your local grassroots football heroes, with not a lot else to do lets make this biggest year yet. Unfortunately we don’t have a date and venue for our awards due to the recent lockdown but as soon as we are able to announce our plans we will let you know

Volunteers have weathered the storm this season. With the floods and now the coronavirus pandemic, it’s more important than ever to recognise and thank them for their hard work and dedication in a challenging time. http://www.cornwallfa.com/news/2020/mar/26/2020-grassroots-football-awards-nominations-now-open

The awards recognise and reward the people, clubs and leagues that deliver grassroots football throughout the country. Awards are split into categories, and County FAs select a local winner for each. These form a shortlist for The FA’s national winners, selected by a national judging panel. http://www.cornwallfa.com/news/2020/mar/26/2020-grassroots-football-awards-nominations-now-open
