We have received a letter from the Football Association advising that Liam Balmer and Steve Honey from Ashford Town (Middlesex) have been placed within the top six groundsmen in the National Step 5 and 6 award category throughout the country.

The winners will be announced at the FA’s “Groundsman of the Year Awards Day” on Tuesday 16 August at St. Georges Park and both Liam and Steve have been invited to attend.  All the finalists will receive a certificate from the FA.

Our pitch was better than it has ever been last season and full credit and congratulations go to Liam and to Steve and his colleagues.
