Cath Davis, an under 17s Girls team player, received recognition recently. The following is an extract from Sports Across Staffordshire website: –
‘Catherine Davis of Cheslyn Hay Sport and Community High School became the third South Staffordshire School Sport Partnership (SSP) student to register 200 hours Volunteering and Leadership on the YST Step into Sport passport.
Catherine joins two students from the Great Wyrley Performing Arts High School who have achieved 200 hours of volunteering in their Community Clubs. Aiden Bolas and Steven Foster, who are in Year 13 at Great Wyrley were presented with their Gold Awards for active sports volunteering at the school’s annual prize giving earlier in the school year. Steven has been helping with local football club Wyrley Juniors and Aiden with Cannock Phoenix Swimming Club. Both students are determined to continue volunteering at every opportunity and push towards their 400 hours or Double Gold Award. Steven has also scooped the Staffordshire FA’s Football Workforce, Young Person Award for the season 2008-2009. Catherine has achieved her 200 hour Gold Award through School based volunteering in her own school, and in Primary School Festivals and Tournaments. Catherine has also completed over 80 hours volunteering in her local Community Club, helping with the Football Academy at Wyrley Juniors. She was also selected to attend the Staffordshire FA Volunteer Camp at Uttoxeter and the Regional Volunteer Camp at Walsall FC last summer. Their Awards are highly regarded, showing dedication and a willingness to go out of their way to help others and they are a credit to themselves, their clubs and their schools.’
Steve Foster is also mentioned in the report. Steve manages our under 8s Panthers team and also plays for our Mens First team. In addition, he won the Staffs FA Young Volunteer Award last year.
Well done Cath and Steve!
The Club is well blessed with young people putting back their own time into youth football. Any more good news stories?
