Ashton Town Shortlisted for North West Football Awards

Ashton Town Football Club, under the stewardship of club chairman Mark Hayes, has been among five nominees to make the final shortlist of the Kick It Out Promoting Inclusion Award at this year’s North West Football Awards; taking place on Monday 13 November at Lancashire County Cricket Club’s The Point.

Nominations for this new award were invited from members of the public, with Ashton Town going up against Cerebral Palsy United FC, Everton Football Club/Everton in the Community’s Positively Promoting Equality and Diversity initiative, Everycolour and Wigan Athletic Football Club’s Together campaign on the night.

The North West Football Awards are presented at a lavish ceremony, which will see the most influential names in football from across the region come together to celebrate the north west’s strong football ties.

Gordon Johnson, County Welfare Officer at Liverpool FA (pictured with Mark), said: “This nomination recognises the fantastic work on-going at Ashton Town, spearheaded by club chairman Mark Hayes.

“Over recent years, the club has been instrumental in raising thousands of pounds for the Joseph’s Goal Foundation Charity, fundraising on behalf of the GB deaf football squads to enable their participation in this year’s Deaf World Cup. They’re also a recognised Dementia Friendly football club.

“Making the final five shortlist is a fantastic achievement in its own right, and hopefully Mark and his partner Adele enjoy their evening at the awards ceremony.”

Everybody at Liverpool County FA wishes Mark and all of the shortlisted nominees the best of luck this evening.
