Grassroots Football Award Winners Celebratory Gathering

2020/21 award winners come together for a collective celebration at Port Vale FC.

On Tuesday 9 November 2021, we were delighted to welcome our 2020/21 Grassroots Football Award Winners to Port Vale Football Club, at their Football League Trophy game against Liverpool U21’s, which the home side won 5-0 against the Merseyside youngsters. 
The award winners had the pleasure of stepping out onto the Vale Park pitch at half-time for a group photograph with fellow award winners and enjoyed a warm round of applause from the crowd, as we celebrated their achievements and ongoing dedication to local grassroots football.

Having received their respective awards individually over the summer, the gathering was a great opportunity to say a further thank you to all the award winners, who enjoyed matchday hospitality during the evening as we collectively celebrated their achievements.
