The winners of the 2015 Football Blogging Awards have been announced at an awards ceremony at Hotel Football in Manchester.

Over 150,000 fan votes were cast in the 2015 awards, with over 1,000 blogs nominated from five continents stretching from Europe to Africa.

A judges’ choice was also awarded in each category, voted for by a panel including BBC’s Dan Walker, John Cross of the Daily Mirror, Neil Ashton from the Daily Mail, The Guardian’s Owen Gibson and more.

Anthony Cooper, Co-Founder of the Football Blogging Awards, said: “This years’ awards have smashed our records once again, with more than twice as many votes cast as there were in 2014 and five time as many as 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”
