Middlesex FA has made the final shortlist for the award in recognition for its Women's EURO Legacy Work, specifically around Recreational Football Programmes.

The FA’s Head of Operations for Grassroots Football, Tim Foster said: “I’d like to congratulate Middlesex FA in making the final shortlist for this award and all of the other County FAs for their excellent submissions which are testament to their dedication and achievements over the past two seasons.

The partnership is committed to serving those that participate and are involved in the game, and providing the leadership needed to ensure future generations continue to enjoy and benefit from our national game.
