Suffolk FA are urging their clubs to get their nominations in for groundsman of the year.

The prestigious award, which is open to clubs at step seven and below recognises the contribution of these unsung heroes of the grassroots game and encourages the development of groundmanship.

The winner will receive a £100 voucher, the runner-up a £75 voucher and the third placed £50, to spend with Mark Harrod Ltd, sponsors of the award.

Suffolk, along with each county FA, will collate their nominations and will then submit their top three applications to the FA.

To nominate your groundsman, please
