Walsall win League 1 Fair Play Award


The FA have today announced that Walsall have won the League 1 fair play award for 2013/14 season.

With over 550 nominations for the awards, The FA are keen to reward those who have immersed themselves in the Respect Programme and recognise the contribution that so many people, leagues and clubs have made to football in this country.

'Respect is the collective responsibility of everyone involved in football to create a fair, safe and enjoyable environment in which the game can take place,' said Respect manager Dermot Collins.

In addition, 112 FA grassroots leagues submit Respect Marks at the end of each game and during last season 148,000 reports were submitted, with the average mark for behaviour out of five being 4.6. The average mark for enjoyment out of five was 4.4.
