Cornwall Sports Awards

 

TERRY WILLIAMS

AWARDED ‘LIFETIME SERVICES TO SPORT’ IN THE CORNWALL SPORTS AWARDS

Terry Williams has given 40 years outstanding and generous service to Cornwall FA since his election as a volunteer Member of Council in 1973, although his true commitment and involvement with the county stems back many years prior to this.

Terry was also one of the founding Directors of Cornwall FA when it was incorporated as a Private Limited Company in July 2000 and remained a volunteer Member of the Board until recently.

He has given outstanding commitment through hard work and integrity to the Association, historically maintaining thousands of manual affiliation records, county cup player registrations and reinstatements on an annual basis all prior to computerisation. He has also had valued involvement in many committees over recent years including discipline, rules revision and cup committee.

Terry is a real gentleman and has given a large part of his life to supporting football in Cornwall in different capacities as a volunteer; he has been a major component in the backbone of the County FA that has enabled us to build the Association into a stronger entity moving forward.

At a meeting of the Cornwall FA Council in October Terry Williams was made a ‘Life Member’ of the Association.

 

ROSE PANNELL-HITCHENS

AWARDED 'VOLUNTEER OF THE YEAR UNDER 25' IN THE CORNWALL SPORTS AWARDS

3 years ago Rose decided to return to playing football. Rose worked hard to establish a brand new ladies football club for Cornwall at Bodmin Town FC.

This year Rose took to the task of relocating Bodmin Town Ladies to get the club closer to the West of Cornwall, where she and a large proportion of the players now lived. After months of meetings, correspondence and hard work Bodmin Town Ladies have now moved and renamed to join Illogan RBL FC and Illogan Junior FC near Redruth. By working closely and joining this fantastic Community Charter Standard Club, Rose has managed to expand the opportunities her female football club can offer to the community.

During her second season at Bodmin Town, Rose joined the committee for Cornwall Women’s Football League and taken on various roles including temporary League Secretary and she is currently Vice Chairman of the league this season. Her position on the CWFL committee gave her the opportunity to become the first ever (as still the only) female member of the Cornwall FA Council (elected post).
