GROUNDSMAN OF THE YEAR 2014
The Nottinghamshire FA are delighted to announce their 2014 FA Groundsman of the Year!
The FA’s Groundsman of the Year Award was set up back in 2002 to recognise the contribution and hard work of vitally important unsung heroes of the grassroots game and encourage the development of groundsmanship throughout the country.
Christopher Churches, of Ruddington Parish Council, has scooped the gong for Nottinghamshire Groundsman of the Year 2014.
Chris in his first year as Senior Groundsman at Ruddington Parish Council, made a fantastic start to the season, drastically reducing the number of games lost through bad weather with his hard work and dedication. Chris and his team maintain the whole of Ruddington Parish Council grounds and do a remarkable job in keeping the grounds in their best condition.
Chris and his team will now be invited to the Nottinghamshire FA Awards Evening to collect his award as well as go forward for contention in the National Competition.
