Groundsman of the Year 2019/2020 Nomination Form
The time has come to nominate the unsung heroes of grassroots football and nominate a groundsman who goes above and beyond to ensure the beautiful game is played on beautiful pitches.
Each County FA will be collating nominations over the next couple of months and will then submit their top 3 applications to The FA, for independent judging as part of The FA National Awards. The Groundsmen at this level of football are nearly all volunteers who give up hours of their time to provide the best pitches possible using very few resources.
This competition is a great way for these volunteers to get recognised on a local and national level whilst also having the opportunity to meet and talk with the professional Groundsmen who conduct the judging. 2018-19 Nottinghamshire County FA Winners The top three Groundsmen in Nottinghamshire were : Winner: Alex Paterson – Linby Colliery Welfare FC Runner-Up: Lee Cyrek – Cotgrave FC Third Placed: Chris Holmes – Retford FC
