Meds National Award presented at Wembley

On 5th September, Meds were special guests of the FA in London for the recent England vs Slovenia game to officially receive the Club's National Charter Standard Award. John Burnett, the Meds Chairman and Dave Stead, the Club Development Manger were invited to the game where they were dined at the prestigious FA Club at Wembley Stadium and then presented with the coveted FA National Charter Standard Community Club of the Year Award for 2009.
The Club had already won the equivalent award for Manchester FA and the North West Regional FA. The commemorative plaque was presented to John in the players tunnel and photographs were taken on the hallowed Wembley turf.
The picture in the tunnel shows John Burnett with Ray Berridge and Jonathan Hall from the FA and the legendary Sir Geoff Hurst.
John and Dave are also pictured with Les Howie who is the FA's Head of Grassroots Coaching.
