Dr Philip Stevens and wife Denise have been recognised as Vanarama National League North Volunteers of the Month for January.
Pictured receiving the award before the game against Chorley, Denise said, “It was a big surprise but a lovely one!” Philip added, “Volunteers are what make a community club and that’s what makes it a pleasure to be part of. Denise and I are really appreciative of the committee putting us forward for this but we know there are far more people at the club doing a lot more than we do. But thank you all the same.”
Speaking after the home win over Chorley, manager Kevin Wilkin said, “The award is evidence of the good people we have around the club and it is fantastic that two humble, lovely people get a bit of recognition for what they do. Dr Stevens, ably supported by his wife, turn up on Tuesdays and Thursdays and on match-days to help out as with the testing and do so week in and week out on a voluntary basis. I’ve said before it is the contributions of our volunteers, people like this, that get us to match-day in good shape and get us results like we had on the pitch today. I am delighted for them. It is thoroughly deserved.”
Congratulations from everyone at the club to Philip and Denise.
