Football in Berkshire is proud to announce the 2023 Short List for the Eddie Stobart Berkshire Football Awards.

19 judges from the FiB team and across Berkshire’s football media have gone through all the nominations, read the stories, watched goals and come to their decisions.

In total, Football in Berkshire received a record 440 nominations across 178 individuals who we published on Friday on the Long List.

That has been narrowed down by our judging panel to four nominees for each category on the Short List.

The awards night

Before we get to the list, we should tell you about the ceremony.

It is hosted by Sky Sports News’ host Tom White at Double Barrelled Brewery in Reading. The venue is accessible by train from Reading Station and the number 17 bus, or Tilehurst station. There is plenty of parking available at the venue as well.

Doors open at 6pm and dinner is part of your ticket which also includes a performance by our house band The Small Strings. The venue is limited to 150 seats, so it is first come first served.

Enormous thanks to everyone who took the time to post a nomination, thank you to our judges and thank you to our sponsors.
