Football could not run without the volunteers who take on the roles within clubs, leagues and schools they are the backbone of football. If you are a volunteer then without your time, dedication and commitment that you and many others show and give for our Cornwall FA then the clubs and leagues would not exist.

The Cornwall FA Long Service Award
The very special FA Awards for 50 years' service to football has been given to four football volunteers from one club in West Cornwall. The club, Penryn Athletic was formed in October 1963. The enthusiasm and efforts of Anthony Retallack, Peter Young and Mike Young have been recognised and a club presentation was held at the Kernick Road Clubhouse in October 2013.
Anthony, Peter and Mike have been there from the beginning and are considered as the founders of the club. The club started off with not even a pitch but with commitment and passion the club has given many the chance of playing football and will continue to provide the opportunity.
