The search for Derbyshire’s grassroots heroes has begun as the FA and McDonald’s have announced that nominations for the annual FA Community Awards are now open.

The awards aim to recognise and reward grassroots clubs, coaches and volunteers across the country who keep the national game alive.

Nominees can be from any walk of life and Derbyshire County FA is calling on locals to nominate their unsung hero who has gone above and beyond in the name of football.

The seven award categories are: People’s Choice Award (Outstanding Contribution to Community Football), The FA Charter Standard Community Club Award, The FA Charter Standard Development Club Award, The FA Charter Standard Club Award, The FA Charter Standard League Award, The FA Volunteer of the Year Award, The FA Young Volunteer of the Year Award.

Nominations close on Friday March 27 and the national award winners will be announced at the annual curtain-raising FA Community Shield, presented by McDonald’s at Wembley Stadium in August.
