RESULTS may be the be all and end all for some in the professional game, but so many clubs at Non-League level are at the heart of their communities, carrying out so much good work that often goes unheralded.
That’s why we honour those clubs who go the extra mile – and this year’s National Game Awards, in association with leading sports coaching and education firm SCL, are no different.
Once again, the Community Club of the Year Award is backed by The Football Foundation, who pump £30m into grass-roots football every year, helping clubs to build or improve their facilities for the good of not just players and fans but local people too.
With so many Non-League clubs doing their bit for their cities, towns and villages, we want you to have your say and let us know who should pick up the coveted prize.
Whoever follows in the footsteps of last year’s winners, Merthyr Town, clearly have some big shoes to fill – but once again there are plenty of contenders.
How about Dulwich Hamlet who, after staging a game last year to raise awareness of homophobia in football, recently hosted a match to raise funds for the Southwark Refugee Forum and British Red Cross Syria appeal?
Or maybe Ryman League sides Thamesmead Town and Folkestone Invicta, who thought outside the box for their Good Friday fixtures – both clubs handing out easter eggs to supporters!
But, like so many of our awards, we need you to help us to highlight the best so we select the most deserving club.
