First for Ford

Ford picked up the Award titled We only do positive in recognition of his support and promotion of the FA Respect campaign.

Ford Daniel is a parent of one of the players in Bedworth United’s Under 15’s.  Martin Jones (A previous winner of the FA Grassroots coach of the year) said of Ford. “Ford is everything you could wish for in a parent, always willing to help out in whatever way he can, be that officiating in games, helping out at training, organisng events.  Basically Ford is a mainstay of the team and his encouragement and promotion of fair play amongst not just the players but the parents as well is brilliant.  I can honestly say if every parent involved in junior football was like Ford then junior football would be so much better than it is now.”

Ford was presented his award by Kevin Shoemake CEO of the Birmingham FA at half time during The Greenbacks game against Dunstable on Saturday.   Ford is pictured here with Kevin, Martin and his wife Leonie.
