Wed 11th October 2017 | Eccleshall | By Ian Templeman
Eccleshall groundsman Dave Rhodes finished in third place in the 2017 FA Groundsman of the Year Awards - North West Counties Football League.
When League officials carried out a ground grading visit at Pershall Park last week, League Management Committee representative John Reid took the opportunity to present Dave with his award on the pitch he had just finished working on.
Club Secretary Jim Tunney said: "Dave is worth his weight in gold for the work he puts in preparing our pitch. Over the years, we have had many positive comments from visiting teams about the playing surface at Pershall Park and this is due in no small way to Dave's efforts.
"Eccleshall Football Club are really pleased that he has been recognised in the Groundsman of the Year Awards".
