In its 13th year, Cambridgeshire FA is now seeking nominations for The FA Groundsman of the Year Awards 2015.
The award was set up to recognise the contribution of these unsung heroes of the grassroots game and encourage the development of groundmanship. The majority of football in this country is played outside of the Football League. Quality pitches are, therefore, essential for the development of football at every level. Grassroots groundsman, 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. Each County FA will be collating nominations over the next month and will submit their top three applications to The FA to be in contention to win the national award.
