John Twentyman

The John Twentyman spirit of Cumberland Football Awards

Nominations will close at 5pm on Friday 19th May

As part of our continued push towards ensuring a positive football environment for all involved within the game in Cumberland, we want to celebrate those who have displayed, through their actions, a truly memorable sporting moment that you believe deserves recognition. 

These awards are open to all involved with an affiliated Cumberland clubs and you can nominate a club, a coach, a player, an official, a club or league volunteer, a spectator, a team or even a whole club, by completing a short nomination form outlining how they have demonstrated the true spirit of the game and why they merit a John Twentyman Spirt of Cumberland Football Award

A panel of judges will then meet to select a number of winners who will each win a £50 Kitlocker voucher. These winners will then be shortlisted and a public vote will be held online as well as with a the panel of judges, and the scores from both will be combined (50-50) to help pick a winner who will receive an FA Respect Club Package, including barriers, for their respective club or organisation. 

John Twentyman was an honorary member of Cumberland FA until his passing in 2022. He was a true football man, who only ever wanted what was best for the game and he is therefore the perfect person to name such awards after as he epitomised fair play and the spirit of the game through his actions and behaviour throughout a long and distinguished involvement with football in the county. 

Nominations will close at 5pm on Friday 19th May. 


The shortlist will be announced during the week commencing 22nd May.
