On Friday evening Community Manager, Geoff Stevens was invited to a celebration evening for West of England Sport Trust (Wesport). We are delighted to announce that he was presented with an award for Participation Coach of the Year Sponsored by Sport Coach UK.
“Geoff has worked tirelessly over the last 12 months to get more people to play football in the North Somerset area, working with a number of programmes including Street Games, Sportivate and walking football. He also works in a number of schools across North Somerset, not only delivering football but also healthy schools packages. He currently manages Weston AFC Academy, working with participants of all ages and abilities providing links from grass roots to elite.
A number of Geoff’s sessions have grown to become fully fledged clubs within the year which has helped create a surge in participation in one of the country’s most deprived wards.
His nominator stated that when Geoff first started he delivered sessions back to back every day at no cost showing his dedication to developing participation within the South Weston area.” – Wesport website
