Anthony Cooper, co-founder of the Football Blogging Awards, said: “This year’s awards have been our biggest ever, with almost twice as many votes cast as there were in 2013. The winners thoroughly deserve this recognition for the total dedication to their craft and their love of the game. We hope that the awards encourage football fans to continue blogging, or to start up new blogs, as they are the heart and soul of football”
