“I am delighted to be supporting the Grass Roots Football Show and look forward to another fantastic event.”

Grass Roots Football Show debutant Hughton said;  “The development of grass roots football in this country is vital to the game at all levels from the international and Premier League stage down.

“The opportunity for us all to interact and learn from each other during three days of football is very exciting and I look forward to meeting everyone at the NEC.”

The Grass Roots Football Show also today announced a headline partnership deal with regional radio network brmb.
