The FA Groundsman of the Year Awards 2013

2 years ago By JIM DAVIS

The FA Groundsman of the Year Awards took place at the National Football Centre at St. George’s Park today, 7th August, where all of the finalists were treated to a tour of the facilities and a presentation by St. George’s Park Head Groundsman Alan Ferguson prior to the awards presentation.

This marks the 12th year that the awards have recognised the unsung heroes of the grassroots game through seven national categories.


I am happy to report that Daventry Town Groundsman and Team Manager Darran Foster, alongside Father John Foster, won a splendid trophy for coming third in the Southern League Award and won a Certificate for Highly Commended at level Steps 3 + 4.

Congratulations go to both Darran and John for winning these prestigious Awards.
