The idea is simple. If you think you or your team have scored a screamer, be it everything from a 40-yard lob to a well worked tap in, then you simply upload the clip of the goal to www.youtube.com/TheFA. At the end of each month Chris Kamara and his judging panel of experts will select a shortlist of three goals that will then go to the public vote.
Chris Kamara commented: “This is an unbelievable competition! I feel honoured to have been selected for the judging panel and I cannot wait to see all the fantastic goals come flooding in. The grassroots game is full of hidden talent and I’m really looking forward to hopefully finding the next Steven Gerrard or Wayne Rooney over the coming months.”
The FA’s Grassroots Goal of the Month competition is the latest initiative to come from The FA’s eleven-a-side recruitment campaign, which aims to inspire and support adults to keep playing eleven-a-side football. The FA has a stated objective to retain 30,800 men’s teams & 480,000 players by 2012.
