During the half time break on Saturday the Junior section made presentations to Allen Bethel for his services to Stocksbridge Park Steels Juniors. Allen founded Stocksbridge Juniors in 1982 and he has provided opportunities for 1000’s of local boys and girls to play football in a fun, friendly and safe environment.
As a token gesture for all his hard work and commitment over the last 30 + years, Allen will become president of Stocksbridge Park Steels Juniors, retaining a link between both the junior & senior section of the club.
And to Carol Cooper, again for services to Stocksbridge Park Steels Juniors with roles over the years including parent, first and foremost, coach, manager, girls chairperson and more recently as a valuable member of the committee in a very undervalued role as Assistant Child Welfare Officer
Without Carols dedication, time and effort in making sure all volunteers within the club meet strict FA guidelines in coaching & safeguarding qualifications the whole club would simply not be able to operate. Thank you Carol from everyone, both past & present at Stocksbridge Park Steels Juniors.
