Do you know someone involved in grassroots football in Scotland who deserves a medal for all the hard work they put in?
Well, the 2011 Scottish Football Association (SFA) Grassroots Awards take place in February and nominations are open now.
If you know a fantastic coach, an unsung volunteer or a brilliant youth football club, then why not put them forward for an award?
The awards ceremony, which celebrates the efforts of volunteers across Scotland, will take place at Hampden Park on 3 February.
So if you know someone who goes that extra mile to provide footballing opportunities to others or who provides inspiration to kids with their coaching, this is your chance to help them get the recognition they deserve.
With three new awards introduced for 2011, these eighth annual awards now feature eight categories for nominations:
- Best Volunteer in Youth Football
- Best Volunteer in Adult Football
- Best Volunteer in Disability Football
- Best Volunteer in Women's/Girls' Football
- Best Volunteer in Schools Football*
- Best Coach in Youth Football*
- Best Youth Football Club of the Year*
- Merit Award for Services to Football
* New award for 2011
So if you know any unsung hero who fits the bill in one of these categories, or a fantastic football club at youth level, please nominate them for an award. Your nomination could be the one that gets them recognised!
To find out more about each category or to make a nomination, visit the SFA website.
Tell us about them!
If you have nominated a Club Website member for one of the awards, we'd love to hear about them and what they do for football in your local area. We may even feature them here at Club Website in the future!
