'The response from all quarters has been fantastic. We are working very closley with the organisers for BRM Grass Roots Live 2012 which is at the NEC in May, and a repeat of the competition looks on the cards.
'Having presented the award at an U7s Tournament being run by Hartford it is gratifying to see all the youngsters taking delight in their first tournament and that's what grass roots football is all about. Kids enjoying themselves and getting involved in the game we all love at an early age.'
