Know a volunteer, player or even a referee who deserves a bit of plaudits? Then get their names submitted..
When Darrell and I setup FootballinBracknell it was with a view to celebrating the great and good of local football in Bracknell and the surrounding area, whether it is men’s, women’s, youth or junior level.
We thought then what better way to do that than try and setup some end of season awards and open nominations to you, the paying public.
As this is the first time we’ve done it, and we don’t know what kind of response we might get we’ve cobbled together a few categories for you to nominate in BUT we’ll only carry a category forward for judging if we have a minimum of four nominations in it.
Nominations will be open until midday Thursday 12th May. We will then put these before a panel of judges for a decision and announce the winners shortly after. 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 Bracknell Forest Borough based club or league. We will present FiB certificates to the winners.
So without further ado, here are the categories (and scroll to the bottom for the nomination form):
Player of the Season
Easy to explain this. Who has been the best player you’ve watched or played with locally this season?
Young Player of the Season
As above but limited to players under the age of 21.
Referee of the Season
It’s a cliché, but being a referee is a bit of a thankless task but the reality is we wouldn’t have a game without them. So tell us who has been a top notch referee this season.
Digital platform of the Season
We know only too well how valuable the club or league website has become. We also understand how much time it takes keeping the darn things up to date, so tell us which website has impressed you this season! This could also be an impressive club or league social media account.
Volunteer of the Season
There wouldn’t be a football scene in Bracknell without these men and women who’s efforts go largely unsung. Whether they are managing an under 11s or jumping on a tractor to cut the grass and paint lines. We want to hear about these people!
Image of the Season
We have some great photographers sharing photos with us, but is there one that stands out? Are there images that we’ve not seen? Let us know – and don’t forget to include a link
Goal of the Season
This one is only going to work if we can see video clips, so if you want to nominate a goal make sure you have a link to the video!
Manager/Coach of the Season
Some managers are volunteers. Other managers do it as a second career. It depends on the level, this award celebrates the art of managing a football team. Did your gaffer save you from relegation, did you runaway with the league or have they just helped you improve your game personally?
Pitch/Ground of the Season
Where have you been this season? Where have you played that has impressed you? Maybe it’s a non-league ground or a particularly well kept council pitch. Let us know.
