Eden pair rewarded for contributions to football
THIS year’s Cumberland FA community award-winners included two from Eden — Michelle Carruthers, a welfare officer, referee mentor and vice-chairman of the Penrith and District Junior League, and long-serving Penrith AFC player Willie Paul.
Now in their seventh year, the FA Community Awards presented by McDonald’s, aim to recognise and reward people across the county who make a different to grassroots football in Cumbria — the people who dedicate their time to developing tomorrow’s talent and help to ensure that the game is played in a safe environment, while delivering best practice throughout the clubs and volunteer workforce.
The ceremony was held at Hunday Manor Country House Hotel in Workington and a total of nine awards were presented, seven of which followed public nominations.
