At a time when the domestic football season is reaching an exciting conclusion and the European Championships are fast approaching, local residents have the chance to nominate local community football heroes.
The FA Community Awards aim to recognise and reward individuals across the country who make a difference to grassroots football in their local community. There will be a local, regional and national ceremony to celebrate each of the winners, and you can also apply for grants to support local football clubs and nominate a player escort for the next international game. Nominations are open until 11 May 2012.
To find out more about the Awards, and how you can nominate a coach, club or volunteer that deserves recognition, please visit www.mcdonalds.co.uk/kickstart
