John Twentyman

Nominations OPEN for The John Twentyman Spirit of Cumberland Football Awards 2023-24

Nominations will close at 5pm on Friday 21st June 2024.

Following the success of last season’s inaugural awards, which was won by Lee Coan of Whitehaven Miners Social FC for his role in creating a family atmosphere at the club (more info at here), The Cumberland FA is delighted to open for nominations for the 2023-24 season. 
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 shortlist of nominees who will each win a £50 Kitlocker voucher. The nominees will then put to a public vote, with the scores from the online public vote and the scores from the panel of judges 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 21st June 2024.
