3aaa partner, Derby County named Johnstone’s Paint Community Club of the Year for 2015

We are delighted to announce that our partner, Derby County Football Club has been named the Johnstone’s Paint Community Club of the Year at The Football League Awards 2015 on Sunday evening.

Simon Carnall, Head of Derby County Community Trust, along with Community Manager Paul Newman received the award at the gala ceremony at The Brewery, London, on Sunday evening in front of over 600 guests from clubs, sponsors and the football industry.

The Football League Awards 2015 mark the 10th year of the awards, which celebrate on and off pitch excellence across The League’s 72 clubs. This year all 72 clubs were nominated for at least one award.

Through Derby County’s community programme it is clear it recognises the ability it has as a club to engage people, raise hopes and aspirations and improve the lives of the people of Derbyshire. The club’s community trust is committed to ensuring that it meets local needs while working strategically in line with regional and national agendas. In 2014 the scheme ran 50 projects and reached more than 30,000 participants, with its flagship Derby City School Sport Partnership project helping to increase participation for young people in the community.

On winning the award, Simon Carnall said: “It’s huge for the football club, from the owners to the chief operators to the board of trustees. Everyone in the Derby County Community Trust are so proud to be here tonight to win this award. Derby is a football city and when the team are doing well, the city is doing well so it really helps us with what we’re doing at the Trust.”


Earlier on in the year, we were revealed as Derby County Community Trust’s Presenting Partner. Sharing similar values, we recognise the profound impact that the power of sport can have on people’s lives and we recognise that by working together we can create further opportunities for young people throughout Derbyshire.
