Middlesex Monthly Review

A look back at some of the best bits of Middlesex Football from the last month

We kick off our new website feature with some of the good news and practice we have seen by chance or been tagged in on social media since the turn of the year.

This is by no means everything that has happened during that time which is why we want to do this on a monthly basis to ensure we can recognise, reflect and celebrate the work our clubs do throughout each season. So much can happen over the course of a season as the last 12 months have shown, it can be easy to forget the amazing work that happens, at the start, or midway through a season once the final games have been played.

So to kick us off:

Pro Touch SA were nominated as finalists for the UK Youth Inspiring Hope Awards 2021. The organisation who run football sessions within Middlesex were nominated for the Inspiring Inclusivity Award. Well done to all involved with the club!
