On 1st November 2018, Danielle Seivwright joined prominent names across grass roots football on The Football Black List at its annual awards ceremony.
The ceremony is supported by the FA, Premier League, Professional Footballers Association and Kick It Out and celebrates the tremendous work of individuals from African and Caribbean backgrounds. It pays tribute to those making a difference in the community at grassroots level and honours the next generation of leaders.
The initiative itself offers an opportunity to reflect on how diverse the football industry is, discuss the under representation of people from African and Caribbean backgrounds and, most importantly, how to address this issue.
One of the awards at The Football Black List celebration was the newly renamed Ugo Ehiogu’s Ones to Watch Top 10 List which is dedicated to former footballer and coach, Ugo Ehiogu, who won the main award in March last year before sadly passing away in April.
Danielle Seivwright was nominated for her incredible efforts working with and volunteering for County in the Community. She was nominated by Norman Parselle due to the incredible impact she's had in Newport by delivering Premier League Girls and FAW Regional schemes, as well as her work with the We Wear the Same Shirt Mental Health team and the Streetgames Family Engagement initiative.
Danielle is an extremely valuable member of the County in the Community team.
As recognition for her efforts, Danielle was nominated to Ugo Ehiogu’s One to Watch Top 10 List. She just missed out on the top prize on the night, but was one of just eight people UK-wide to reach the highly commended status.
Everyone at Newport County AFC would like to congratulate Danielle on her fantastic achievement.
