The Search For Durham County FA Respect Champions Has Begun

These Respect Awards aim to recognise grassroots leagues, clubs and volunteers across the Durham County FA area who work hard to promote Respect.

Durham County FA is asking everyone in our football community to nominate their Respect champions.

Any nomination for a National Award can also be nominated for a local Respect Award in the three categories of League, Club and Volunteer – so make sure you remember to nominate to both the FA and also to Durham County FA.

John Topping, Company Secretary said: "The Durham County FA Respect Awards are a great way to celebrate leagues, clubs or volunteers who have clearly demonstrated a commitment to promote the Respect programme. I would encourage everyone in our local football community to nominate to Durham County FA a league, club or volunteer who they consider to be truly deserving of an award. I hope we will see great many nominations"
