The weather was kinder this year than last for the presentation of medals and awards to Neston Nomads junior football teams.
Distributing the medals to footballers of both sexes from 4 year olds to late teens took over an hour, allowing for a sizeable break between teens and pre-teens. The club has 300 junior members in over twenty teams, including now two girls’ teams. There was a participation medal for each, and for each team trophies for best player and most improved player.
It was amazing to see that local businesses had yet again sponsored kits for each team – a welcome investment by socially aware businesses in our midst. And a big thank you from local residents ought to go as well to the adults who each manage one of the teams.
It was great this year also to be able to present the award for the best contribution to the Nomads to Club President, Frank Hesseltine who was one of the club founders in 1942. The club is even older than I am!
