Nominations are now open for the FA Community Awards presented by McDonald's
The search begins for Worcestershire grassroots football clubs, coaches, players and volunteers.
The FA and its Community Partner, McDonald’s, have this week announced that nominations for the annual FA Community Awards are now open. The Awards aim to recognise and reward grassroots clubs, coaches and volunteers across the country.
The Worcestershire FA is calling on people from across the county to nominate their unsung hero for one of the eight award categories so that they can be recognised for their commitment and achievements throughout the last year.
The eight award categories are:
• People’s Choice Award (Outstanding Contribution to Community Football)
• The FA Charter Standard Community Club Award
• The FA Charter Standard Development Club Award
• The FA Charter Standard Club Award
• The FA Charter Standard League Award
• Volunteer of the Year Award
• Young Volunteer of the Year Award
• Coach of the Year Award
To find out more about the awards, read about last year’s winners and nominate an individual club or league from your community, log onto TheFA.com/YourGame - click HERE.
Nominations close on 22 March and the national award winners will be announced at The FA Community Awards presented by McDonald’s in August 2013 at The FA Community Shield, sponsored by McDonald’s.
The winners will be selected by a judging panel which is likely to include Sir Geoff Hurst and Sir Trevor Brooking both of which are involved in the search for the winners of these prestigious awards.
"We are delighted that The FA and McDonald’s have recognised these clubs and individuals with the Community Awards and believe this is a great opportunity for us to celebrate the dedication and commitment shown by clubs, coaches, players and volunteers across the UK and we urge people to nominate. Fingers crossed we get some finalists and national winners from Cheshire!”
