Supporters Direct partner with NWFA for a second year
Posted on 19th September 2018
Supporters Direct, along with our colleagues at the Football Supporters Federation, have partnered with the North West Football Awards (NWFA) for the second year running. The awards were created to celebrate the region’s brightest and best across football.
They pay tribute to and recognise those that achieve off the pitch as well as on it across the Premier, English Football and National leagues. Awards include ‘League Player of the Year’, ‘Rising star’, ‘Women’s Player of the year’, ‘Best Fan TV Channel’ and our personal favourite at SD the ‘Unsung Hero’ award.
The unsung hero recognizes an individual that greatly contributes to football in the North West. Last years winner was a posthumous award given to Gordon Lawton, from Oldham Athletic Football Club. He had worked for the club for more than 30 years fulfilling a number of different roles including programme editor, club commentator, media manager, and football secretary, and was a well-known face among players and fans at Boundary Park. His award was accepted by his wife, Lorraine.
