Nominations for FA and McDonald’s Grassroots Football awards open
Suffolk FA will be celebrating the people, clubs and leagues who make a positive difference across their communities.
It is a chance to celebrate the work that goes into grassroots football.
Nominations are now open until May 10, 2019 and anyone can make a nomination.

The awards are split into 10 categories:
- Grassroots Coach of the Year
- Grassroots Supporter of the Year
- Grounds Team of the Year
- Grassroots Club of the Year
- Volunteer of the Year
- Rising Star of the Year
- We Only Do Positive Respect
- Grassroots Project of the Year
- Grassroots Match Official of the Year
- Grassroots League of the Year
Suffolk referee George Byrne not only won the county award last year, but went on to win the national award.
Suffolk FA football development manager Jodie Allard said: “The FA and McDonald’s Grassroots Awards give us a fantastic opportunity to recognise and reward the invaluable work of our volunteer workforce across the county of Suffolk.
“Grassroots football could not take place without the tenacious and selfless commitment of hundreds of individuals who contribute many hours of their time towards supporting their local communities through football.
“If you have a grassroots hero at your football club, we would encourage you to nominate them for one of this year’s award categories.”
