150 Years of the Football Association


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!
