The Football Association of Wales Awards 2019 were held at Hensol Castle in the Vale Resort. The evening was hosted by Gabby Logan and celebrated the achievements of Welsh International Football.
The prestigious FA Wales Player of the Year Awards went to Jess Fishlock and David Brooks, with the players player of the year awards going to Gareth Bale and Sophie Ingle. A lifetime achievement award went to John Toshack.
The FA Wales this year commissioned Morgans Consult to design and craft their new beautiful awards to be showcased at this years awards event.
The awards have been manufactured from the finest Welsh slate. Designed with a riven natural cut-off to symbolise raw Welsh talent and honed with sleek straight edges to symbolise this talent being honed into athletes
Lifetime achievement award is capped in pure gold to emphasise the significance of this accomplishment.
All gilding in 23.5 carat gold
Gilded ‘together stronger’ slogan on the rear of the awards with an engraved outline or the Snowdon mountain range which is only complete when all of the awards are lined up together
These exclusively designed awards are made from a material that is synonymous with Wales and its design features beautifully represent the history and values of the FA Wales.
The annual FA Wales Awards event not only celebrates Wales’ greatest footballers, past and present, but also the proud nation they represent. It’s fitting that we recognise these footballers’ contributions with an award that pays homage to our beautiful country… its geography, its history and its culture.
The quality and craft of these trophies is evident, brought to life by the story they tell. I’m sure the players will be delighted to have been named winners and will treasure these trophies.
