What an evening we’ve had at Exeter Racecourse for our Annual Devon FA Football Awards for 2018.
Since the beginning of July 2017, volunteers from around the county have put their heart and soul into retaining football as the beautiful game.
As ever, Devon FA are proud and hugely appreciative of the countless hours our grassroots football heroes put in.
This year, you, our incredible players, managers, coaches, referees, groundsman and all volunteers have nominated for their grassroots football hero.
On Wednesday 25th July, we held our Football Awards for 2018 at Exeter Racecourse in a room filled with 180 winners and runners up of the awards.
