Holyport forward Christian Johnson is up for a Berkshire Football Award in the category of Young Player of the Season (Male) sponsored by Taurus Carpentry Ltd.

At the end of this season, Johnson earned his first Maidenhead United contract in the Vanarama National League having impressed playing in the Combined Counties League Premier Division with Holyport.

One nomination for the award said: “First season of competitive men’s football, on the bench for Maidenhead in the Cup against Slough Town. 20+ Goals and assist for Holyport and also their top goal scorer. Still only a second year at the Maidenhead Academy.

Another added: “He has been integral in their side this year he is a young player playing at the top of his game already and has scored and assisted a lot this year.”

A third said: “Excellent player, amazing sportsmanship. His talent is so great he’s been signed to the Maidenhead team which is a huge achievement. His hard work, training and determination has paid off well. I can only hope for more success ahead.”

Scroll down to the bottom of this article for the nomination form. Before you do that though, here’s what the judging panel are looking for when choosing the shortlist.

What’s the story? Tell us exactly why the person or place should be considered. We hate to get all ‘X Factor journey’ on you but the more detail you can include, the better we can argue for your nominee for the short list.

The sort of details we love to see include things like player awards, goals, clean sheets and any other significant contributions to the footballing community – obviously within the 2022/23 season.

There have already been hundreds of nominations for the 2023 awards, we’ve published a lot but still have a lot more to do!

You can view all the 2023 nominees so far here.

Want to know who’s previously won what at the Berkshire Football Awards? There’s a big long page with all the previous winners here.

Nominations will be open until midnight on Wednesday 31st May 2023.

The Long List will be published on Friday 2nd June and the Short List on Monday 5th June.

Once that date has passed the nominations in each category will be put before a panel of judges for a decision, the top three announced online and the winners at the awards night on Wednesday 21st June.

We will accept nominations for people out of area, the only prerequisite is that the reason for nomination is that it must be because of an affiliation with a club we cover on Football in Berkshire (a full list is at the bottom of this page). We will present certificates and a trophy to the winners.

  • You can nominate as many people as you like for each award
  • Please try and avoid nominating your own family members.
  • Due to difficulties in obtaining permissions under child protection laws we won’t consider any player under the age of 16 for nomination in any of the categories
