Clapton CFC make shortlist in Football Supporters Association Awards

Clapton CFC were up for the Non-League Award at the Football Supporters Association Awards ceremony this week.

The shortlist of six was:

  • Bury FC – for their work in bringing football back to Gigg Lane
  • Clapton CFC – for their return to the Old Spotted Dog ground in E7.
  • Dulwich Hamlet – for their community work, including the club’s new multi-faith room
  • Frome Town Council – for their work securing the future of Frome Town FC and the club’s stadium
  • The Non-League Show – for championing non-league football at all levels
  • The Shrimpers Trust – for bringing together fan groups at Southend United and leading the campaign to oust owner Ron Martin

In the end, the judges chose Frome Town Council for the award, but making the shortlist was excellent recognition of the hard graft we’ve all put in to get football back at the OSD. 

Congratulations to them, and to all the winners and nominees across 15 categories. See the nominees here and the winners here.

The FSA Awards are the largest supporter-led football awards in the country with over half a million votes cast in the 10 categories that were chosen by fans.

In 2021, we won the FSA Lockdown Heroes Award for our Coronavirus hardship fund, which distributed over £14,000 to people who needed it, and for donating hundreds of free face masks to charities and schools.
