Scott Myers wins HFA meritorious award for his services to youth football in Herefordshire

Orleton Juniors stalwart Myers, started his involvement with the club after arriving in the county and looking for a club for his two young boys.

He is now secretary of the club, runs the creche team, two under-seven sides, an under-eight team and has just established the club as a Wildcats Centre, at which he is head coach.

Myers has opened up what was a long established club to the younger age groups.

He is groundsman, social secretary and recently became chairman of the Orleton Recreation Association, so he can accelerate the club’s plans for a new pavilion.

Myers has worked tirelessly to try to secure funding for much needed improvements to the facilities. He encourages the teams to take part in futsal and has put in a huge amount of effort to develop football for girls at the club.
