Alan Wood wins Derbyshire FA Grassroots Groundsman of The Year for his voluntary work at Carr Vale FC.

A cheque for £250 has been presented to Alan. And after winning the county award Alan will attend a further special awards ceremony on August 1, at Derby Conference Centre.

The awards evening will be dedicated to grassroots football volunteers of all types.

Alan said: “Carr Vale FC is a hidden gem and a great place for youngsters to play their football, we work very hard to maintain our pitches and with Bolsover Castle and Sutton Hall within sight people are often impressed with what they find when they visit with their team.”
