Tuktuk Day 74

The FA and England Football join forces with Michail Antonio to celebrate grassroots football volunteers

After yesterday’s “good news” blog when we looked at the greatest goals, here’s an even better one. It’s March so it’s time for the annual Grassroot Football Awards. It’s the time of year when we think back on all those people who have helped us through the season in whatever capacity and when we have the opportunity to publicly thank them.

Nowadays, there are a huge range of categories so there may well be a whole number of people you can nominate at your club. Read on, Macduff!

Grassroots Football Award

The Grassroots Football Awards are here for you to say thank you to all the people and organisations who give their time to make football happen… our awesome volunteers who give so much week-in, week out, rain or shine. And they are for you, the parents, coaches, clubs, leagues, fellow volunteers, match officials etc to pass on your appreciation. 

By nominating a volunteer for a Grassroots Football Award, you’re passing on your thanks. For every big and small moment they bring. For their time, energy and ideas. For your appreciation of everything they do in making the grassroots game happen. 

Your thanks will mean a lot, to a lot of people.

As well as a big thank you, our national Award winners will enjoy a once-in-a-lifetime experience at their own presentation ceremony at Wembley ahead of the Community Shield. As well as tickets to the match, filming and photography at their club plus more prizes.

You can nominate as many times as you like, in as many categories as you like. And every time you nominate a volunteer, you can be sure they’ll hear all about it.


This year, it’s easier than ever. You can now tell their story in a way you want simply by letting us know:

• What they do, and how it impresses you
• How they make a difference to others’ lives
• Where they’ve had an impact in their community

The more detail you give, the better. 

Nominations are open to the 3 April 2024. There are twelve different categories for you to nominate into. For more details please click below. I will not be embarrassed if you nominate FC Deportivo Galicia!!!



I would like your money, just £1 of it! I am struggling to reach my initial target £500 for FC Deportivo and Prostate Cancer at £20 or £50 so this is a bit of a test/a trial if you like. I wonder how many of you would be happy to add just £1? I would be very grateful if you would consider a donation however small to support  Prostate Cancer UK  If everybody chipped in £1 I would easily hit my target of £5,000 and the charity would continue to fund their great work. Every single penny goes DIRECT to Prostate Cancer UK. A HEARTFELT thanks, if you can donate. If you can’t you can still help massively by sharing this page about the work of Prostate Cancer. If you prefer to support FC Deportivo Galicia, their link is here
