Grassroots Football Awards 2020

GFA 2020 - Rising Star of the Year

Liverpool County FA continues to announce the winners of this year's FA and McDonald's Grassroots Football Awards.

This week, Liverpool County FA will be continuing to announce the winners of this year’s FA and McDonald’s Grassroots Football Awards (GFA), which acknowledge and celebrate the incredible leagues, clubs and volunteers involved in the game across Merseyside.

During what is a difficult time for so many of us, with grassroots football hit incredibly hard, it is a pleasure to be able to pay tribute to just some of the many factors that make our game so special – and emphasise why, when we can come back, we’ll come back stronger.


Everybody at Liverpool County FA would like to congratulate the winner of this year’s Rising Star of the Year accolade… Sid Langford.

Sid LangfordThis young man lives for his football and although very talented is an excellent team player.

He is very unselfish and brings all his team mates into the game. Sid loves a lot of different sports but this young man has a special talent. If he can keep his feet on the ground, the world will be his oyster.

Sid has probably got one of the best shots of any boy or girl of his age. Sid creates things that don't even look possible. Sid is a game changer. If Sid picks the ball up in midfield, he thinks so quickly and sees the right pass instantly.

Sid runs the game from the first whistle to the final whistle. He encourages all his team mates and keeps them all motivated.
