Dalkeith CYP's Disability Officer selected as Regional Winner

Dalkeith CYP's Disability Officer selected as Regional Winner

Dalkeith Miners CYP Disability Officer Steven Williams has been selected as Regional Winner 2015 in this year's SFA Grassroots Awards in the category of Disability Football.

In partnership with McDonald's and the Sunday Mail, the SFA Awards recognise the value individuals such as Steven bring to football and their communities.

Steven devotes a huge amount of time and effort to our football club in his role as Disability Officer as well as running a team. His involvement means that school kids who might not otherwise get a chance to play football have that opportunity.

Tony Begg, Club Development Manager for the Scottish FA South East Region said, 'The annual regional grassroots awards, in partnership with McDonalds and The Sunday Mail, is a chance for us to reward and highlight the great work that is done by volunteers across the region and to extend our thanks to all those who commit so much time, energy and passion to our game. I am delighted for Steven that he has won this award, he gives a tremendous amount to disability football and he is a worthy winner'.

The awards ceremony will be on Saturday 29th August at Easter Road Stadium ahead of the Hibs v Raith Rovers match that day.

Following his selection as Regional Winner, Steven will now go forward within this category to the national awards panel with the potential of being a National Winner, to be awarded at Hampden Park in September.
