STAFFORDSHIRE FA is calling for people across the county to nominate their unsung heroes for the FA Community Awards to reward clubs, coaches and volunteers, writes Ben Goddard.
The eight award categories include the people’s choice award for outstanding contribution to community football, the FA charter standard community club award and the FA charter standard development club award.
Two other awards are the FA charter standard club and the FA charter standard league awards.
The final awards are volunteer of the year award, young volunteer of the year award and the coach of the year.
Nominations close on March 22 and the national award winners will be announced at The FA Community Awards, presented by McDonald’s, and presented at The FA Community Shield in August.
Staffs FA football development officer, Gareth Thomas said: “Grassroots football is at the heart of the national game and every week across the country, people dedicate their time and energy to provide professional, fun and rewarding football experiences for the local community.
“Fingers crossed we get some finalists and national winners from Staffordshire!” For further information about the FA Community Awards 2013, contact Gareth Thomas at firstname.lastname@example.org or on 01785 256994/07815 295723.
