Steve Falcus, Manager of the Under 13’s was nominated and won a Sainsbury’s Local Hero Award for his hard work and commitment to the development of the team and players.
A team manager’s job is not easy and requires the dedication of significant time during a season with training the team, supervising matches and attending meetings.
During the last two seasons Steve has transformed the struggling team which he inherited and he has instilled a strong sense of belief in the players. The team finished 3rd in the League and won the Ian Mitchell Tournament in Blackpool which will be the teams first of many trophies.
Steve is highly regarded by the players, parents and Burradon Juniors Management committee and we are delighted that his efforts have been recognised.
A grant of £200 was awarded to Steve and typically, rather than retaining the funds for his team, he generously donated the money to the Club’s general fund for the benefit of all the children.
