A former March Town striker has won a top award at the FA Community Awards.
Rob Conyard, 17, won the Young Volunteer of the Year at the Cambridgeshire FA’s ceremony last week.
Conyard, who now plays for Deeping Rangers and March Soccer School, was recognized for his exceptional work in the local community as a player, coach, referee and volunteer and for being a role model to youngsters in Fenland.
He was presented with his award at Cambridge United’s Cambs Glass Stadium last Tuesday (17).
A March Soccer School spokesman said: “The club is proud of Rob and all of our local volunteers who are all exceptional and work tirelessly to provide footballing opportunities and quality coaching for all.
“Developing the children on and off the pitch is of great importance and the club is thrilled that so many players – both boys and girls – are now stepping up to refereeing and coaching.”
