RNAS Culdrose Community Football Club Wins Award


 RNAS Culdrose Community Football Club have been awarded the FA Charter Standard Club of the Year 2018 for Cornwall at the recent FA Grassroots Awards.  The club has now won an FA award in 4 of the last 5 seasons and is recognition of the club setting the highest standards in providing a safe and enjoyable learning environment to play grassroots football.

There were also nominations for the club in two further categories with Club Chairman Lt Cdr Andrew Plenty being nominated once again for Volunteer of the Year having also won the award on two previous occasions.

AET Ciaran Nash also received a nomination for Coach or the Year in recognition of his dedication to RNAS Culdrose Ladies Football in growing the team of Service players, partners and dependents after it almost folded last season.

Club Chairman Lt Cdr Andrew Plenty explains the significance of the Club award:

“We are extremely proud that we continue to set the highest standards when it comes to creating a safe and enjoyable environment for all that participate in football within our club. To win the award for a fourth time in five seasons is just a phenomenal achievement for all at the club.  We provide an essential link between Service Personnel, their families and the local Community through sport and provide football for all from our Youth players to our Adult teams.  We not only develop the children’s footballing abilities but also their life skills through being part of a team. We also develop leadership qualities through sport, providing the Royal Navy with over 25 qualified FA Coaches in the process and Service sport for over 90 Service players.”
