The Devon Football Family Awards were held at Winslade Park as a celebration of the amazing contributions made to the beautiful game from people across our region.

 

Hosted by David Fitzgerald, this inaugural event saw the awards presented by Exeter City manager Gary Caldwell and his assistant David Perkins, along with Plymouth Argyle manager Steven Schumacher and his assistant Mark Hughes.

A total of 25 awards were given out on the evening, across four categories, England Football Awards, Long Service to Refereeing, and our own Devon County FA awards and Representative Caps.

David Parish, Leader of Devon FA’s Council said: “I am proud to have been part of a fantastic evening, celebrating the service to Grassroot football of some of the Fabulous Volunteers we have here in Devon. It was also great to have the support for grassroots football from our 'Professional Clubs.”
