Rashford earns a place on 2020 Football Black List
Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford has been named on the 2020 Football Black List.
Marcus has, of course, achieved some truly incredible things over the last several months and successfully lobbied the government for an extension of the free school meal provision, as well as helping to launch a children’s book club.

“The efforts of Marcus Rashford deserve acclaim alongside the others on the list who go about their business for the good of others,”said Hinds.
“After a year of challenges, it is great to be provided with inspiration.”
The Football Black List aims to highlight the work of those individuals who are attempting to make football more diverse across all levels of the game, and address the lack of representation in decision-making positions held by members of the black community.
The annual award is split into several categories and salutes those working in football across various roles, including players, administrators, coaching and management, commercial, community and grassroots, LGBT+, media and practitioners.
Aston Villa’s Tyrone Mings, Watford’s Troy Deeney, former Red Wilfried Zaha and Crystal Palace’s Chloe Morgan were also recognised, as were former Premier League players Les Ferdinand, Micah Richards and Jason Euell.
Marcus’s inclusion in the Football Black List is yet another recognition of the truly amazing charity work Marcus has done in the last year, as well as being awarded an MBE, receiving an honorary doctorate from the University of Manchester and having his face painted on a mural in Withington.
