Two Pembrokeshire football sides will be honoured at the Cardiff City Stadium tonight when Wales take on Denmark in the Nations League.

Both Fishguard Sports and St Florence have triumphed in the 2018 FAW Grassroots Awards, with Fishguard named Community Club of the Year, while the girls' section at St Florence winning the best Grassroots Projest of the Year.

Both clubs were nominated for the honours after winning their West Wales regional categories back in October.

As a result, two members from each club have received tickets for the game tonight, where they will officially receive their respective awards. In the past, winners have been paraded on the pitch during half time of international games.

Community Club of the Year - Fishguard Sports AFC:

Fishguard Sports AFC was on the verge of closing years ago but is now thriving as a club, having secured a new football pitch and facilities at Tregroes.

Over the past eight years, the club has gone from having just one boys team to six, spanning the right way from under 7s to under 15s. And there are also four female sides, with up to 50 girls training every week.

They field a team for players with a disability too. “That’s just like a bottle of medicine. These kids have been through a lot and they’re overcoming adversity every day. They are absolute stars, every one of them,” says Mathew.

Chairman Owain Duggan said: "The club has won this award for two reasons - the development of Tregroes Park which we couldn’t have done without the committee who purchased the field in 1991, and those who worked hard to see it through.

"And secondly the building up of the junior section, boys, girls, and disability teams. We now have a venue that can accommodate all of them.

"This award is for every player, parent, coach, volunteer, organiser, groundsman, and committee man who has helped out. And also thankyou to our sponsors, I am very proud and grateful to you all.

"I would also like to thank the Pembrokeshire League as there would be no football for us without them."

Grassroots Project of the Year - St Florence Girls AFC (Tenby)

St Florence Girls was set up in 2017 by coach Geraint Jones and secretary Kelly Thomas to give girls in the area the opportunity to play football. Now four teams from the club are entered in the Pembrokeshire Women and Girls' league - under 10s,12s,14s and 16s.

Their aim now is to get an under 8s team started.

Those involved with the club ensure the pitches are marked, the goals are set up, the girls always have regular training sessions and that the quality of their experience is positive.

Geraint told Telegraph Sport: "When we started out we just wanted girls to play football and were never looking to win awards. So this recognition is a bonus.

"Even when we won the West Wales award we didn't think he would get anywhere near this. So it's amazing for everyone involved."
