Bosham's Commercial Manager, Simon Jasinski, has received Sussex County FA's Workforce Volunteer Award in recognition of his contribution to the club.

Simon, was one of six who received the accolade at the presentation evening from Sussex FA Chairman, Mathew Major, at Sussex County Cricket Ground in Hove, on Thursday evening.

The awards ceremony set out to recognise and reward volunteers, coaches and referees who all play their part in developing the grassroots game within the county.

Simon has been central to recent Sport England 'Inspired Facilities' funding of £52,125 - used over the summer to improve Bosham's clubhouse and dressing rooms; gained a further £3,000 through the Football Foundation's 'Grow The Game' grant to support the club's new under 16's side and increase participation; and was also a primary instigator in the club achieving FA Charter Standard status last season - a marque of excellence for how a club is run.



He has also successfully helped re-engage local businesses to generate record close-season sponsorship revenue; is editor of Bosham's award-winning match day programme, and the official website - recently voted no.1 on Pitchero's team ranking system from over 5,000 non-league clubs. When called upon, he is also linesman for the first team!

The evening also saw TV interviews given to the award winners via Brighton-based channel, LatestTV.

Speaking of the award, Simon - who by day works in digital advertising in London, said: "I'm extremely proud to receive this award, which recognises how far Bosham Football Club has come in a relatively short space of time.

"I couldn't have done half of this without the help of the committee and management at the club, so feel this is just as much about the hard work they put in which has enabled us to be successful as a collective.

"With my parents living nearby and having an affinity from an early age, I've always had a soft spot for the club - even when I moved away from the area - and am so pleased to have done my bit.

"It gives me immense satisfaction to see people using and enjoying our improved facilities and do something positive to benefit both the football club longer-term, and the local community.

"I'm very grateful to the help and guidance we've received along the way from the likes of Colin Smith and Bob Probee, and not least to mention the support from my partner, Kate."

Selsey were the main headline makers on the evening with Allan Lambourne receiving a National Coach of the Year; Jordan McCarthy for Young FA Workforce Volunteer; and Sussex FA Charter Standard Community Club winners.

Meanwhile referee, Tony West, was presented with his 50 years service medal from special guest, former FIFA and Premier League referee, Ray Lewis.
