Carol Bates, a massive Reds fan and founder of Crawley Old Girls, has been nominated for the Sunday Times Sportswoman of the Year's grassroots sportswoman award, sponsored by Vitality.
Carol founded COGS as a recreational team for women over 25 in Crawley and based at The People's Pension Stadium.
She set the club up five years ago to create a welcoming and non-judgemental environment for women to take up or return to football. The club has more than 100 members and has inspired other clubs to start up in the area.
In summer, Carol organised for more than 200 women to play an old girls’ World Cup in France.
Closing date to vote is November 18, with the awards being announced three days later.
