Congratulations to Rachel Davies, who is the latest worthy winner of the Altrincham FC volunteer of the month award.
Rachel was a talented young footballer as a child, so much so that, at the age of 10, she was offered a place at the Manchester United centre of excellence at their old Cliff training ground in Salford.
Unfortunately, a serious injury ended her competitive playing days at just 16 years old, but, undeterred, she continued contributing to the game she loves by turning her attention to the development of girls’ football at Alty.
Her commitment to encouraging local youngsters to play and bringing the best out of them has never wavered, and she recently organised a girls’ tournament that was a resounding success.
Indeed, she has now reached the stage where she is coordinating a girls section at the club that has almost 400 participants playing on a weekly basis.
Well done, Rachel, and enjoy your prize of a £30 voucher kindly donated by Blanchflower Bakery & Kitchen to be spent at their renowned town centre restaurant.
