A big award dedicated to the biggest personality we’ve ever known. As well as being the co-founder of Football in Berkshire, Darrell ‘Dudley’ Freeland was a colossus in the local game, first as a volunteer, then as long-serving Club Secretary at Bracknell Town.
This award is chosen by the Football in Berkshire team and awarded to a person as a ‘Lifetime Achievement Award’.
We aren’t taking nominations specifically, but if there is someone you think we should consider please nominate them for the Outstanding Contribution to Local Football award here.

Scroll down to the bottom of this article for the nomination form. Before you do that though, here’s what the judging panel are looking for when choosing the shortlist.
What’s the story? Tell us exactly why the person or place should be considered. We hate to get all ‘X Factor journey’ on you but the more detail you can include, the better we can argue for your nominee for the short list.
The sort of details we love to see include things like player awards, goals, clean sheets and any other significant contributions to the footballing community – obviously within the 2021/22 season.
There have already been hundreds of nominations for the 2022 awards, we’ve published a lot but still have a lot more to do!
You can view all the 2022 nominees so far here.
Want to know who’s previously won what at the Berkshire Football Awards? There’s a big long page with all the previous winners here.
Nominations will be open until midnight on Tuesday 31st May 2022. Once that date has passed the nominations in each category will be put before a panel of judges for a decision, the top three announced online and the winners at the awards night on Wednesday 15th June.
We will accept nominations for people out of area, the only prerequisite is that the reason for nomination is that it must be because of an affiliation with a club we cover on Football in Berkshire (a full list is at the bottom of this page). We will present certificates and a trophy to the winners.
- You can nominate as many people as you like for each award
- Please try and avoid nominating your own family members.
- Due to difficulties in obtaining permissions under child protection laws we won’t consider any player under the age of 16 for nomination in any of the categories
