Crediton Youth FC coaches held a get together in the clubhouse and also presented a few awards on the evening.
The Club Person of the Year went to Sabrena Philp for her outstanding contribution to club, including her sterling work as club treasurer.
Adrian Harvey presented the Chairman’s award to Nikki Sandland for all her hard work as Membership Secretary and for all the commitment she also put into last seasons U16 girls and U14 boys sides, plus the Wild Cats sessions.
The Vice Chairman’s award was presented by Matt Norman to Scott Brimilcombe for the terrific work that he put in with regards to coordinating sponsorship of this year’s tournament.
Long Service awards were presented to Dave Hartshorne and Nikki Sandland for their services to the U16’s girls side that finished at the end of last season. This was the first girls side to be formed when girls football returned to the club back in 2016.
The final presentation of the evening went to Mike Edworthy who after twenty years with the club has decided to step down.
Club Secretary Martin Daniel thanked Mike for the amazing amount of dedication and support he had given the club over the years. There is no doubt that the club would not be in the position it is today if it had not been for experience and guidance he had given the club. During his years at the club, Mike had undertaken many roles including Secretary and Tournament Secretary, and Child Welfare Officer. He had also coached two sides and been a very active committee member and stalwart of the annual tournament. Mike’s wife Alyson was also thanked for all the support she had given the club. Martin said people like Mike take some replacing, but the legacy he has left behind is truly massive. Mike thanked both Adrian & Martin, and said it was a tough decision to stand down and had very much enjoyed being part of the club. He would leave the club with very many happy memories and the great things that the club had achieved to bringing it to where it is today with over 250 boys and girls playing in the all the age groups.
