Please join us in welcoming our newest committee member, Pete Malady to the club…
Peter Malady joins us following a very successful spell as the Bengeo Tigers Welfare Officer and in 2014 was announced as the winner of the National FA Bobby Moore Award. The Award was presented to Pete by the FA Chairman, Greg Dyke at Wembley. This award recognises individuals who promote both respect and general fairplay within the grassroots game.
Peter was recognised for his contribution in promoting respect, delivering governance, eradicating poor behaviour and creating a safe environment for young people to enjoy the game. Peter displayed courage, integrity and compassion in dealing with a number of complex and challenging situations. Peter was invited to St George’s Park to deliver a presentation to the FA’s Lead Respect Officers outlining some of the innovative measures he implemented to improve standards. In 2015 Peter also collected first place in the Outstanding Contribution to Football Category for his achievements and was formally recognised by Hertfordshire FA’s Respect Award’s panel.
Pete has already helped out around the club whether catering for the masses during our hugely successful Charity Day for Mudlarks & Children With Cancer UK back in March and more recently assisting with the new roof for the clubhouse.
Away from football, proud Aussie Pete is also a pilot so here’s hoping he flies as his primary objective will be to manage the new clubhouse project as we keep building solid foundations for the future for our club.
Please say a welcoming G’day when you see him next at The Park although probably best not to mention The Ashes… too much!
