Following on from last year's successes, the Cheshire FA can now announce that the Groundsman of the Year Competition for 2015, at Step 7 and below, is now open for nominations.
The FA's Groundsmen of the Year is now in its 13th year. The Awards were set up to recognise the contribution of these 'unsung heroes', who work in all weather, all year round, to make sure that thousands of matches can take place on a high standard of playing surface.
The majority of football in this country is played outside the Football League. Quality pitches are therefore essential for the development of football at every level. Grassroots groundsman, the vast majority of whom are volunteers, play a huge role in ensuring pitches are in their best possible condition, week in, week out.
We therefore invite nominations for Groundsmen operating at Step 7 or below so if you think your surface is pitch perfect do not hesitate to nominate.
The deadline is Friday 6th February at 5:00pm.
