THE FA and McDonald’s Grassroots Football Awards are saying a huge thank you to the incredible volunteers who inspire us all, and the nomination process for 2021 is currently open via www.essexfa.com until Tuesday 4th May.
People who make a positive difference can now be put forward for recognition, celebrating the fantastic individuals who put their heart and soul into the grassroots game across England. This season, 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.
Your nomination is going to mean so much to the person receiving it. They’re going to be a winner in the eyes of their peers or players. Anybody can nominate people into a category through the online nomination portal. County FAs select a local winner for each from the public’s nominations. These form a shortlist for the national winners, selected by a national judging panel.
