A new host venue, the Roundhouse in Camden, has been announced for the upcoming London Football Awards.

Entering its sixth year, the London Football Awards will take place on March 5, 2020 and is set to raise crucial funds for Willow - a national charity helping seriously ill young adults.

Set up by Arsenal goalkeeping legend Bob Wilson, the event celebrates the very best of London's football.

The event has previously been held at Battersea Evolution and includes a number of awards such as Player of the Year, Manager of the Year and Young Player of the Year.

Bob Wilson, Willow co-founder and life president, said: "The London Football Awards is a fantastic opportunity to celebrate the skills of our nominees, as well as the outstanding community work achieved by the clubs and county FAs.

"It is a vital event to support the work of Willow in raising important funds to provide special days to seriously ill young adults.

"We are looking forward to an unforgettable evening of football and entertainment, in our new home, the Roundhouse."

The awards are independently judged by an expert panel from the footballing world, which includes former West Ham player Tony Cottee.

"It's an honour for me to be part of the judging panel at the London Football Awards," Cottee said.

"It's an event I look forward to each year and a great opportunity to celebrate the skills and achievements of the many talented London players, while raising much needed funds for Willow, whose special days for seriously ill young adults provide hope and happiness when it's needed most."
