The Guardian wins newspaper, podcast and writer of the year at FSA awards

  • Barney Ronay named best writer, Football Weekly best podcast
  • The Guardian is crowned newspaper of the year for 10th time

The Guardian has been voted the newspaper of the year by the Football Supporters’ Association (FSA) for the 10th year in a row.

It was one of three awards the Guardian picked up at the FSA’s 2022 awards ceremony, along with podcast and writer of the year prizes. “It’s the award we care about more than any of the others,” said the Guardian football writer Suzanne Wrack.

Football Weekly won the podcast award, while Barney Ronay was named best writer. “These awards are about celebrating the FSA, who have never been so important,” Ronay said after accepting the award from the FSA chair, Malcolm Clarke. “Join it, support it.”

The FSA’s chair, Malcolm Clarke, said: “Once again, the Guardian’s editorial team have proven themselves to be a firm favourite among genuine football supporters across the country. Whether its via the Football Weekly podcast, the consistent standard of their sports desk or quality feature-length writing, exemplified by Writer of the Year winner Barney Ronay, its clear they retain the respect of matchgoing fans.”

David Squires was nominated for the online media of the year prize, while Football Weekly’s Max Rushden and Barry Glendenning were also successful in the radio show category for their TalkSport programme The Warm Up.
