Grassroots Football

AS PART OF the The FA and McDonald’s Grassroots Football Awards 2018 the East Riding County FA is searching for local Grassroots Football Heroes.

The awards recognise the important role grassroots leagues, clubs, volunteers and community projects play in making the nation’s favourite game happen week in week out throughout our region.

The awards champion those selfless volunteers who enable everyone to play and enjoy grassroots football in a safe, fun and inclusive environment regardless of age, gender, race, religion or disability. Greg Clarke, FA Chairman said: “The FA and McDonald’s Grassroots Football Awards are integral to recognising the thousands of exceptional grassroots volunteers all over the UK, by providing youngsters with the opportunity to play the nation’s favourite game in a fun and safe environment these volunteers allow the next generation of footballing superstars to develop their skills. It’s not an exaggeration to say that without their hard work and dedication, football in this country wouldn’t be the same.”

Charter Standard Club of the Year

Charter Standard League of the Year

Grounds Team of the Year

Match Official of the Year

Supporter of the Year
