The nominations for four categories at the London Football Awards 2015 have been announced, with Tottenham and Chelsea both heavily featured.

The winners will be announced on March 5 at an awards ceremony hosted by Soccer AM’s Max Rushden at Battersea Evolution.

The ceremony, which will help raise funds for Hatfield-based charity Willow, will also see the unsung heroes of football in the capital recognised through the London Community Project of the Year award.

Further Awards to be announced on the night include London Women’s Player of the Year and Outstanding Contribution to a London Club.

There will also be a Q&A on the night involving former players and TV pundits Lee Dixon, Glenn Hoddle and Tony Cottee.

Willow is a national charity that provides unique and positive ‘Special Days’ for seriously ill 16 to 40 year olds. They were founded by former Arsenal goalkeeper and sports presenter, Bob Wilson and his wife, Megs, in memory of their daughter, Anna, who died of cancer aged just 31.

Tickets to the London Football Awards, which include pre-dinner drinks and a three course meal, are still available.

For more information and booking visit or telephone Willow on 01707 259777.
