The FA and McDonald's Grassroots Football awards are back!

 As part of the 2019 awards we are also welcoming nominations for two of our own awards;

  • Football Administrator of the Year
  • Outstanding services to Cornish football


The Club administrator is for those Chairperson, Secretaries, Treasurers and any other administrator who keep the club running, making sure the paperwork is up to date, players are registered, the club is affiliated and all the other jobs that can be taken for granted.

The Outstanding service to Cornish Football could be anybody who is involved in the game in Cornwall, someone who you think has gone above and beyond over the years and does it without fanfare, without fuss and just for the love of the game, that person who probably doesn't realise how valued and appreciated they are.

To nominate someone for either of these awards please email  with the name of the person you wish to nominate and a reason for the nomination with as much detail as possible.

The categories for this year’s awards are chosen to reflect the diversity of our football communities and the positive impact of football.

The FA’s Progressive, Respectful, Inclusive, Determined, and Excellent, values and behaviours are the backbone of The FA and McDonald’s Grassroots Football Awards. We’re looking for people who make these values part of clubs, leagues and local communities.

When making a nomination think about how you can evidence the difference and impact on those around them. You can see more about the award criteria at
