Football365 has been crowned the inaugural winner of the Football Supporters’ Federations Online Media of the Year award.
Named among a strong list of contenders including OptaJoe, Copa 90, Spencer FC, David Squires and uMAXit Football, Football365 somehow emerged as the victor at the awards in London on Monday evening.
The honour comes one year after our very own Daniel Storey was crowned FSF’s Football Writer of the Year following his wonderful work on the Portrait of an Icon book.
“It’s a credit to the site that people don’t realise we have four full-time staff,” said the lovely Daniel, sending his love from Barcelona, where he is watching 427 games in five days.
“What a wonderful way to recognise 20 years of the website,” added editor Sarah Winterburn. “Eight offices and seven owners later, I think we’re the best we’ve ever been.
“If anyone wants to read Daniel Storey’s raw copy, I think we’d all agree that I deserve a special award all of my own.”

F365’s Winterburn and foot soldier Matt Stead were presented the award by Conor McNamara. Stead does indeed look like Stan Laurel.
Among the other award winners on the night were Harry Kane (Men’s Player of the Year), Jill Scott (Women’s Player of the Year), Martin Tyler (Commentator of the Year), Gary Neville (Pundit of the Year) and Jonathan Wilson (Writer of the Year).
BBC 5 Live’s 606 was also crowned Radio Show of the Year. Robbie Savage accepted the award. He was wearing some questionable trousers.
Genuinely though, thanks guys. You’re the best. After us.
