At Penzance AFC, i would say our unsung heroes are John Mead (Secretary) who runs the club behind the scenes, doing an amazing job! Next are our long serving tea-hut ladies, Jenny Williams and Pauline Mead who have run the tea hut (with some help over the years) but have stuck with it and are our familiar faces at Penzance for several generations of families associated with the club, they were there the day i was born! :) . Jimmy Hocking and Pete Williams (along with John Mead and other helpers), who keep the ground in tip-top condition. All of these people are unsung heroes in the club, all doing jobs which are like a cog in a wheel, without them, the club would not function on a long term basis. Thank you guys! :)

Nalders West Cornwall Sunday Football League recognise these stalwarts. We give out three or four trophies "Nalders Unsung Heroes" a season and reward the winners and their partners with a dinner at a top restaurant. (Well, not MacDonalds)

Tony Triggs of Truro GWRSA is our latest victim. Before that we had Martin Kemp of Penzance Astro and Sharon Hodgkin of Shortlanesend - both those two at the end of last season. They also get a write-up and photograph in the paper.

Chris Lawrence the presenter of the Saturday Afternoon show on Atlantic FM Radio Station had the foresight to do something about this last year and introduced the `Atlantic FM Cornish Sports Personality Award`. Nominations were received for club stalwarts (everyone from club chairmen, secretaries, groundsmen, you name it) who do just about anything and everything to keep clubs running. Last season, the inaugural for this award, was won by a club chairman who has seen the highs and lows of football in the Duchy whilst carrying out just about every position there is, including working behind the club bar seven nights a week. Mike Barbery of Bodmin Town was the first winner and we will of course be looking throughout this coming season for the next winner. I'll speak to Chris to see if we can open it up to suggestions and if I have my way, Ronnie James name will definitely be going into the hat. Perhaps StevieB can PM me with some details on his career as 63 years is something worth celebrating.
