FAW Trust McDonalds National Grassroots Football Awards
Friday 16th November, Cardiff City Stadium
Congratulations to St Florence Girls FC and Fishguard Sports AFC on winning their national awards on Friday at McDonalds National Grassroots Football awards.
Grassroots Project of the Year Winner: St Florence Girls FC
Geraint Jones & Kelly Thomas accepted the award on behalf of the club that was presented by Wales women’s national team manager, Jayne Ludlow. Geraint and Kelly set up St Florence Girls last year to give girls the opportunity to play football, encouraging them to be active and develop their skills. Their dedication and commitment has now seen the club enter 4 teams from u10s – u16s into the Pembrokeshire Women’s & Girls league. A fantastic example of how to develop and provide grassroots football opportunities.
Community Club of the Year Winner: Fishguard Sports AFC
Matthew Lamb and Owen Duggan accepted the award on behalf of the club that was presented by former Wales striker, Jermaine Easter. Over the past 8 years Fishguard Sports have developed themselves in to a club that is at the centre of its community. They have developed junior football for boys, girls and players with a disability. The club currently has 7 junior boys teams, 4 junior girls teams and a junior disability team. Alongside the 2 senior teams they have developed a new ground with changing facilities and a clubhouse that has given the club the home it deserves. The tireless efforts and hard work of a number of volunteers within the club have allowed them to provide the extensive junior playing opportunities now available within the club.
