Grassroots Football Excellence Awards
To recognise those making a difference
Along with our sponsor, Charlton Baker, we want to reward the remarkable contribution football volunteers in Wiltshire. Without the time, dedication and commitment volunteers demonstrate in football clubs and leagues, grassroots football would simply not exist.
Alongside the FA and McDonalds Awards, the Wiltshire FA & Charlton Baker Grassroots Football Excellence Awards 2020 will introduce additional awards to recognise and thank more clubs, leagues, volunteers and projects that are making a difference in grassroots football in Wiltshire with a big celebration event next summer.
Nominations are open! Charlton Baker Grassroots Football Excellence Awards Categories:
