The Hunts FA have recognised a number of clubs and individuals for their contributions to the grassroots game.

The county association staged their Community Awards at St Neots Town’s Premier Plus Stadium last Saturday.

A host of candidates were put forward in eight categories during a seven-week nomination period earlier in the year. A judging panel then arrived at the winners.

And there were double successes for two local junior clubs – Ramsey Colts and St Ives Rangers.

The Ramsey outfit was named Charter Standard Development Club of the Year while club official Sally Rothery earned the Volunteer of the Year accolade.

Rangers won the Charter Standard Community Club of the Year prize while Phoebe Webb took the Young Volunteer of the Year gong for her work at the club.

Other local winners were Sunday side Golden Knight, who picked up a Respect and Fair Play award while referee Bill Tatman was honoured for 25 years of service to the local game.

Hunts FA development manager Dean Watson said: “We are fortunate to have so many fantastic clubs, leagues and volunteers who help us strive towards providing better and more footballing opportunities for players.

“We know how much work goes into football on a weekly basis the awards allow us to say thank you to those who dedicate so much time to the game cross the county.”

The Hunts FA Community Awards are sponsored by McDonald’s.
