Football Awards kick off once again

Fri 12th Aug 2011 | Football Industry Events

After huge success for the last five years, the MBNA Northwest Football Awards is back once again. 


The Awards, which recognise the region’s footballing excellence, both on and off the pitch, have already gained the support from businesses and organisations such as The PFA, FIFA, Sky Sports and The Football Foundation.
 
Last year, loyal fans voted in the tens of thousands for the top player categories, with a panel of renowned football experts selecting the corporate teams, which have made the biggest impact behind the scenes.  
 
This year’s panel includes Gordon Taylor, Maurice Watkins, Alan Myers, Tom Cannon, Dan Jones, Ryan McKnight, Stephen White, Martin O’Boyle and Paul Thorogood.
 
Gordon Taylor, judge for the fourth year, said:
“The region has built up phenomenal respect and credibility, not only through the success of its seven Premiership and 23 professional clubs, but also as the home to the PFA, The Football League and The National Football Museum.
 
“These Awards recognise the footballing accomplishments from across the region, whether it be a club manager, player or the favourite goal.  Our expert panel selects people that are both from the spotlight and those that work tirelessly behind the scenes.  The MBNA Northwest Football Awards are hugely popular and draw in support from both the football industry, the general UK public and business communities.
 
“With my role at the PFA and my personal love of football, I’m extremely proud to be on the judging panel and supporting this event.  We hope everyone gets behind this to celebrate and honour our region’s talent.”
 
The awards ceremony will take place 14th November at The Point, Lancashire County Cricket Club.

-     Goal of the Year
