Marlborough Youth Football Club (MYFC) is calling for parents, the public and club members to vote for their end-of-season Club Player of the Year.
Possibly Marlborough’s most popular youth community sports club with, astonishingly, c.500 players partaking in thirty-one boys, girls and mixed teams, the ‘Club Player of the Year’ is split into two awards – one voted solely by club members (Award 1) and the other voted by everyone– players, parents, and members of the public (Award 2).
All parents and members of the public are invited to take part in Award 2: ‘Parents and Public Vote’—MYFC have been running this award for many years now and traditionally keen for all the community to celebrate and share a fantastic footballing ethos.
MYFC invited the nominations below from MYFC Team Managers, for players in any age group, who have excelled in any aspect of their football, including contribution to the game, fair play, helping others, support and commitment, as well as ability and performance.
1) One vote per person.
2) All votes must be received by midnight on 24 June 2022.
3) The winner will be then announced on social media and details for the award presentation confirmed.
Who is in the runnning? Nominations by category are:
Max Gill: MYFC U8 Falcons
Max Gill for his approach to football this year. Max always turns up to training and matches with a positive attitude and willingness to listen and learn and never forgets to thank those involved for their efforts, which is hugely appreciated. He also has played in many positions, including his less favoured. It is also noted that Max is a keen sportsman who is involved in other sports, but he is always there for his team when they need him. Unbeknown to the club he completed a triathlon and football match on the same day! We would have encouraged rest, but it was no surprise that Max had not mentioned his busy day given his understated approach! Well done Max.
Charlie Halder: MYFC U15 Eagles
Charlie joined the U15 Eagles at the start of the season, and from the first training session in August he settled in immediately to be a really key member of our squad. Charlie always brings a positive attitude to training and matches, and will always take part in a great spirit, never complaining at all if things are not going our way in a match, or if things are not going his way on the pitch. He delivers a very consistent and reliable level of performance every week in the centre of midfield, and always listens to the advice that the coaching team tries to provide to the group. There have been times where he has also been managing injuries during the season but has always given 100% to the cause in both matches and training, putting the team ahead of himself. Charlie is the type of player that exemplifies the spirit we try to encourage and cultivate at MYFC
Poppy Jameson: MYFC U8 Angels Orange
Poppy has been wonderful to coach ever since we launched this girls age group 12 months ago. She always listens to her coaches, respects her teammates and is happy to play in all positions on the pitch. Poppy quietly gets on with it and is a great example to the rest of the group and a credit to our Club and the values we try to instil in all of our players.
Flo Lambert: MYFC U8 Angels Black
Flo is a quietly determined player who gives confidence to all the girls playing around her. She has an inner steel and great reserves of energy, always leaving everything on the pitch and giving everything for her team. One of those players who as a player you would always want on your team! Her behaviour is also impeccable, and Flo is another great example of what our Club is all about.
Poppy Pearson: MYFC U7 Eagles
Poppy Pearson has a huge enthusiasm for the game, is an exceptional player and always supports her team members and keeps them motivated!
Georgia Riches: MYFC U10 Angels Orange
It’s not the fact that Georgia is an excellent player, or always turns up for training and gives it 110%. Neither is it her keen skills, which are head and shoulders above the others. I have nominated her because she is a true ambassador for all that’s good in football. Teamwork, helping others develop, being fair and kind and letting others grow as part is a team. Letting others feel the glory, rather than taking every opportunity. This heart and generosity are why teams do well, and why football is fun.
Freddie Williams: MYFC U7 Falcons
It’s been a tough decision, but the coaches feel Freddie Williams should be nominated as he turns up for training every week without fail, is always the first to sign up for matches, puts in a 100% and is a team player who always passes the ball if the option is there.
Oliver Wyatt: MYFC U8 Eagles
Oliver Wyatt for his approach to football this year. Oliver has made huge progress, at first uncertain and new to club football, he has since grown in confidence and ability. What has been a constant throughout has been his smile, enjoyment of the moment – whether training in the rain or playing a match, his positive attitude and good manners. Throughout the season, Oliver has always been eager to help out in any way he can, whether that be assisting coaches with setting up and clearing away, or being on hand to support his teammates, even when unwell and unable to play himself. Oliver is an excellent role model and a very valued member of the Marlborough under 8 squad. Well done Oliver.
