Cornwall FA are delighted to announce this year's FA and McDonald's Grassroots Award winners.
The FA and McDonald’s Grassroots Football Awards are for people who make a positive difference. It’s our way to celebrate the fantastic individuals who put their heart and soul into the grassroots game across England – and say a huge thank you to the incredible volunteers who inspire us all.
After receiving numerous nominations across the different categories, an awards panel was brought together to select the winners for each award. With some great nominations submitted this year, it was great to see the great work various people have completed over the last season given all the challenges the pandemic has produced.
We can now reveal the winners of each category:
