Each month the Barclays Community Sports Award is given to a group to recognise the outstanding achievements of individuals that use sport to benefit communities across the UK.
Last night we were honoured to receive the November Barclays Community Sports Award, and it was presented to us by Gareth Southgate, of English football fame.
It was such an exciting night having Gareth around during the session. Our girls got to ask him so many questions about his playing and managing career and they heard all about how he started playing football when he was young.
Winning the award will help us gain more skills – we’ll be putting it towards our “off the pitch” training – and it will help us continue to play each week, covering costs like pitch bookings and equipment.
We’re so grateful for the award and the support from everyone who has helped us along the way. If you know of anyone doing something brilliant in sport, nominate them!
