Coasters In The Mix For Some Big Community Awards

AFC Fylde are thrilled after the news that its Community Foundation has been shortlisted as a finalist for two major accolades at the prestigious Armstrong Projects Northwest Football Awards 2023.

The Coasters are in mix for the Community Club of the Year and have made the final seven in the All Other Leagues and Community Initiative of the Season award.

Over the last year, the National League club’s Foundation has had a hugely positive impact on the lives of 6,000 people in the area. Fylde helped deliver over 10,000 sessions across 24 programmes and established key local and national partners, including Fylde Council and the National Lottery Community Fund.

Foundation Director Wesley Partington said: “We are delighted to be finalists for two awards at this year’s Northwest Football Awards. “It is a fantastic achievement for us, as the charity of a National League club, to be recognised for such prestigious awards.

“To see our veterans project shortlisted is something that we are especially proud of, which goes above and beyond to help current and ex-military personnel and their families. I’d like to thank AFC Fylde for their continued support of the Foundation over the past year, it is greatly appreciated.”

“All of our staff work incredibly hard every day to serve the local community and addressing local needs, so I am really pleased to see their efforts rewarded with the two nominations.”

Held at Emirates Old Trafford, the home of Lancashire County Cricket Club, Fylde will find out on Monday 6th November after their work with the Armed Forces Community was recognised.
