The FA & McDonald's Grassroots Football Awards - Norfolk's Winners
NORFOLK'S GRASSROOTS FOOTBALL AWARD WINNERS ANNOUNCED
On Friday we were proud to announce Norfolk's winners of The FA & McDonald's Grassroots Football Awards 2019.
After a six week nomination period, an independent judging panel selected winners and highly commended awards across ten different categories and those in receipt of an award were informed via some famous faces on Twitter.
You can view the announcement thread below featuring, among other well known names, Premier League Referee Kevin Friend, NCFC Legend Darren Huckerby, Baroness Sue Campbell and Wembley Stadium Head Groundsman Karl Standley:
