Crawley Town’s Tracey Cole was crowned the Capital One Supporter of the Year for League 1 at The Football League Awards 2015.

Cole received the award at the gala ceremony at The Brewery, London, on Sunday evening in front of over 600 guests from clubs, sponsors and the football industry.

The Football League Awards 2015 mark the 10th year of the awards, which celebrate on and off pitch excellence across The League’s 72 clubs.

Cole, described by one fellow fan as an ‘extremely dedicated supporter of Crawley Town’, spends a significant amount of her own time helping to arrange travel to away matches for the Crawley Town Supporters Alliance.

Along with her partner Gary, they hire minibuses to ensure there is transport organised.

The Football League is all about fans supporting their team, and this award recognises someone who has gone above and beyond the call of duty and added that extra special bit of devotion to their club and the game of football.

Shaun Harvey, chief executive of The Football League, said: “The 10th Football League Awards has given us the opportunity to reward outstanding performance, both on and off the pitch, during what has been a memorable Football League season.

“Each of our winners thoroughly deserves this recognition and, once again, we’ve seen exceptional levels of talent, dedication and achievement across all our nominees.”
