The prize is just the latest among numerous accolades that the club and its volunteers have received over the years as part of the FA and Wiltshire FA's annual grassroots awards programmes.

"Huge thanks go to our volunteers, players, members and supporters who have all contributed to this award. The last couple of years have been very challenging for us all. But the ongoing dedication and support that everyone involved with the club has shown has been inspiring."
"Our club is a truly special one to be involved with – and this award is recognition of that."
