Skipper Steve Daley becomes the first recipient of a new award on Thursday.
England’s long serving Partially Sighted Team captain Steve Daley will be rubbing shoulders with some of the game’s most famous names later this week, when he receives The FA Football For All Award.
It will be presented at this year’s National Football Museum Hall Of Fame awards on Thursday, when a glittering line-up of football legends will be in attendance for the 2007 inductions into the Hall Of Fame.
Daley, who has captained the England Partially Sighted Team for over a decade now, becomes the first recipient of the new FA award and will be in attendance at the awards dinner at Old Trafford in Manchester.
Alongside him will be 2007’s inductees to the Hall Of Fame, which includes the likes of Mark Hughes, Glenn Hoddle, Peter Beardsley, Graeme Souness and Nobby Stiles.
Also present will be previous inductees such as Sir Bobby Robson and Sir Tom Finney, so it will be a memorable experience for Daley.
Jeff Davis, National Development Manager at The Football Association, said: “The FA is honoured to be presenting The FA Football For All award jointly with the National Football Museum Hall of Fame.
“Steve Daley is a great ambassador of the game and a worthy first recipient for this prestigious trophy.”
