‘Fan of the Year’ Award

By: Rob Sedgwick
Date: 23/12/2007

THE Football League have launched a nationwide search to find the EA Sports ‘Fan of the Year’, with the winner to be honoured at a spectacular gala dinner at the London Hilton on 2nd March 2008.

The Football League Awards are held in conjunction with FourFourTwo magazine and supporters are now being asked to put forward fellow fans for consideration for this award by submitting nominations via www.FourFourTwo.com.

Anybody who knows a fan who has gone above and beyond the call of duty is encouraged to put their nomination forward, along with the reason why they feel their nominee should win this prestigious award.

Stewart Thomson, Commercial Director of The Football League, said: "The Football League Awards rightly recognise fans alongside clubs and players. We’re looking for a fan that really contributes to the running of their club and we would like to encourage anybody who knows someone they think deserves this award to nominate them, and give that person the chance to receive the recognition they deserve for their efforts."

Last year’s winner was Bury supporter Stan McGowen, who enjoyed a memorable trip to London for the awards ceremony as well as receiving extensive national media coverage for both himself and his club. Not only did Stan come up with the idea of getting a minibus for Bury's disabled supporters, he raised the money for it and also drives it thousands of miles every season. "I'm self-employed and I lose money taking the disabled fans to games, but I really enjoy it," said Stan.

If you know someone you think worthy of succeeding Stan and taking the crown of ‘EA Sports Fan of the Year’ then get your nomination in before the closing date on 7th January 2008.
