In addition we are also thrilled to announce our Club Cafe team of Alix Haigh, Lily Osborne Grace Moody & Vicki Moody have received the Volunteer of the Year award.
The FA and McDonald’s Grassroots Football Awards are for people who make a positive difference. It’s the FA’s way to celebrate the fantastic individuals who put their heart and soul into the grassroots game across England – and say a huge thank you to the incredible volunteers who inspire us all.
This season Grassroots volunteers have adapted to the ever-changing Coronavirus pandemic. They responded quickly to make football happen when they could. And when they couldn’t play they kept players, volunteers and the wider community connected off the pitch.
They demonstrated the true power of football, they stuck together, helped each other across teams, across clubs and showed what the football community could do when faced with uncertainty and an unparalleled situation.
