Congratulations to Mark Cooper of Royal Wootton Bassett Town's Under 10 Blue team on winning the special Youth Section Coach of the Month award for November.
Mark was nominated for the award as he made videos to set challenges each week for the team to submit their own throughout the period of lockdown, helping his team's players remain active and engaged with football.
The monthly prize usually takes the form a Player of the Month award and the initiative was initially introduced last season. For November, given lockdown, players and parents were invited to nominate coaches for the prizes. The winner was then selected at random.
The following nominations were received for the November prize.
Under 10 Blue â€“ Mark Cooper
Under 12 Yellow â€“ Mark Crone
Under 14 Blue â€“ Martin Jefferies
Under 15 Blue â€“ Paul Boys-Stones
Under 16 Yellow and Goalkeeper Academy â€“ Mark Francis
