Groundsman of the Year Nominations Now Open!

Does your groundsman go above and beyond to ensure fixtures are played?

Now is your chance to say thank you by nominating them for the 2018/19 FA Groundsman of The Year Awards.

Deadline for nominations is the 7th FEBRUARY 2019.

Now in its 16th year, the Award was set up to recognise the contribution of these unsung heroes of the grass roots game and encourage the development of groundmanship.

These annual awards provide a great opportunity to recognise and reward Club Groundsmen at Step 7 (Northern Football Alliance) and below. The majority of football in this country is played at grassroots level, and quality pitches are therefore essential for the development of football at every level.

Grassroots groundsmen, the vast majority of whom are volunteers, play a huge role in ensuring pitches are in their best possible condition, week in, week out. The Awards were set up to recognise the contribution of these ‘unsung heroes’, who work in all weather, all year round, to make sure that thousands of matches can take place on a high standard of playing surface.
