Congratulations to Sands United FC Kent who have won Grassroots Club Of The Year award at the FA and McDonald’s Grassroots Football Awards.
Every year, the Awards celebrate those people who make a positive difference to the football community across Kent.
It was amazing to receive this award, recognising the work we are putting in on and off the pitch. I didn't even expect to be nominated but to win it, is amazing! The fact people have noticed the work we do, says a lot about the awareness that we are raising as a club, around baby loss.
It's testament to the Dads who allow themselves to speak out about their losses and experiences in the first place, which takes a lot of strength to do so, to come forward and join our team and once they are in, they are getting the support they need, which is the most important thing. I'd just like to thank everybody who has supported us along our journey so far and continues to do so.
- Mike, Team Manager at Sands United FC Kent
