Thu 30th Jan 2014 | Football Industry Events

The Football League has announced the shortlists for the 2014 Football League Awards, which will take place at The Brewery, London, on Sunday 16th March 2014.

The Awards, which celebrate on and off pitch achievements across The League's 72 clubs, will reward players, clubs and fans in eight categories, which include honours for the Family Club of the Year, Community Club of the Year, Fan of the Year and the Unsung Hero award.

In total, 31 clubs have been nominated, with Championship side Derby County leading the way with three nominations, while a further five clubs have been nominated twice.

Shaun Harvey, Chief Executive of The Football League, said: "Many millions of fans attend Football League matches each season and The Football League Awards 2014 provides the opportunity to recognise star performances, both on and off the pitch.
