Mr Ramsey, speaking in the summer when his honour for services to football and diversity in sport was announced, told his club’s website: “I have been in football for 41 years and have managed to touch every part of the game – grassroots, youth, women’s football, disability football, as well as at all first team levels. That means a lot to me.

“The diversity part is something that is close to my heart. I think it’s very important that we realise there are still areas of diversity that need to be looked at in the game.”

Ms Mentor, a former England captain helped the national team secure bronze in the 2019 Netball World Cup and with her teammates won a Commonwealth gold last year.

Snow has become well known for programmes such as Battlefield Britain, Dan Snow’s Norman Walks and Filthy Cities, while Brown is an artist famed for drawing on art history for his grotesque yet fascinating figures.
