Sales director Will Carr said the Ipswich firm was proud to carry on the tradition and support the invaluable contribution of grassroots groundsmen and other volunteers.

He said: "Local football wouldn't function without pitches, and often Suffolk's groundsmen work far above the level required of them."

The Groundsman of the Year competition is held annually in the county and is open to clubs at Step 7 and below.

The Suffolk FA Awards Ceremony is also held annually and as well as the Groundsman of the Year winners, presentations will be made to county winners of The FA and McDonald's Grassroots Football Awards .

The ceremony will take place at Portman Road before Ipswich Town's fixture against Rotherham United in October.
