“It is vital we recognise and congratulate the efforts of our hundreds of leagues, clubs, coaches, officials and grounds teams from across Lancashire, and this awards dinner will go some way to thank them for all for their efforts.”

“I look forward to welcoming the football community to what will be a fantastic 
evening.”

A total of 15 awards will be won on the night, ranging from Grassroots Coach of the Year, Young Male and Female Officials of the Year to a 30-Year Service Award and a 50-Year Service Award.
