“The Cheshire FA and The FA McDonald’s Community Awards are an absolutely brilliant way to celebrate the selflessness of all those volunteers, clubs and leagues and the innumerable hours they put into supporting grassroots football,” said Simon Gerrard, Cheshire FA Chief Executive.
“Last year’s awards shone the spotlight on some incredible individuals and the work they do in in Cheshire, and I would encourage everyone involved in grassroots football to vote for someone who they think truly deserves an award.”
