Wyrley Colts continued their latest winnig streak of awards thanks to Assistant Manager Jason Brimfield.

Jason was awarded the prestigious Haven Hero Community Award by The Haven Refuge – the Wolverhampton-based domestic violence charity which provides support and care for women and children who have suffered domestic violence. Jason was blissflully unaware of his award until he arrived at last night’s ceremony in Wolverhampton attended by Lord Bilston – Dennis Turner and he was presented his award by Emma Reynolds – Member of Parliament for Wolverhampton.

The Haven have been searching for it’s first ever positive male role model and was nominated by The All New Wyrley Colts U11’s players and Team Manager, Scott Lyons. The Haven received countless nominations for police officers, firefighters, solicitors and even a radio DJ, but his voluntary commitment to children in football, especially his one to one care with those who have experienced personal problems, drew a unanimous verdict from a panel of dignitaries, Haven board members and Haven service users who heard of Jason’s relentless energy and selfless commitment to his young team.

The team recorded an emotional video which was shown to the audience and saw testimonies from players in their own words, along with a tearjerking message from his sons Connor and Kielan, both Wyrley Juniors players.

Congratulations to Jason for his award and his commitment to his team – Wyrley Colts are very proud of you!
