DO you know someone who goes above and beyond for their football club?

The FA and McDonald’s are once again teaming up to shine a light on the beautiful game’s most dedicated volunteers at the Grassroots Football Awards.

There are 11 categories to enter and among the awards’ chief supporters is Sir Geoff Hurst, who scored a hat-trick in England’s 1966 World Cup Final win over West Germany.

“For 18 years, McDonald’s has celebrated the important roles of volunteers who dedicate hours of their own time by supporting their local grassroots football community,” said Hurst, who scored over 250 goals in more than 600 career games playing for West Ham United, Stoke City, Cape Town City, West Bromwich Albion, Cork Celtic and Seattle Sounders as well as his country.

“I’m always amazed each year at the personal stories I hear about these grassroots heroes and the dedication of individuals and groups across the UK who invest so much time into the game they love.

“With awards for everything from coaches to groundsmen, if you know any local heroes make sure you nominate someone deserving.”

The awards feature a wide mix of categories which reflect the huge range of roles that volunteers play, including Coach of the Year, Club of the Year, Volunteer of the Year, Football Mum of the Year and Community Project of the Year.

Individual awards take place in all home nations including England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

Nominations for the 2020 FA & McDonald’s Grassroots Football Awards are now open.
