Today my colleague and I, Steve Johnston, went to celebrate the FA’s 150th anniversary at Buckingham Palace. They were making presentations to 150 organisations who have made a positive difference to Grass Roots Football. It was a great day!
After presentations by the President of the FA, Prince William and the Chair, Greg Dyke we watched a football match between the two oldest teams in London, The Civil Service 11 and the Polytechnic 11. A unique experience. Never before has a football match been played in the grounds of Buckingham Palace!
