We are so excited to be able to welcome you to Uttoxeter Racecourse on Friday 9th September to celebrate the winners of the England Football & McDonald’s Grassroots Football Awards.
The awards presentation and three-course-dinner will showcase and celebrate the outstanding achievements, projects and volunteers across the ever-growing grassroots game we all love.
As well as celebrating the winners of the England Football & McDonald’s Grassroots Football Awards, we will recognise the volunteers who have given up so much of their time over the years and have gone on to receive a long-service award.
We're delighted to announce that the evening will be hosted by former Managing Director of bmibaby Dave Bryon and he will be accompanied by a panel of guests who have made the journey from grassroots to the professional game.
Dave has a successful media career that includes an after-dinner comedy routine (based around flying), business keynote presentations, awards evening host, and MC for charity events & auctions. He is represented by all the leading speaker agencies in the UK, and has performed across Europe & the Middle East including Moscow, Dubai, Kuwait and Hull.
Further panel members will be confirmed in due course.
