Wisbech Acorns FC has grown a lot over the past 20 years, and 100 people were present as the club celebrated this anniversary on Saturday.
As a community organisation which started out in 1993 with funding through the Crime Prevention Trust, the club has developed during that time as volunteers have worked hard on policies concerning equality, bullying, safeguarding children and the FA Respect program.
Chairman Rob Gifford won Outstanding Contribution to Community Football in the Cambridgeshire FA Community Awards. Plus Acorns received the Chairman’s Award from the Peterborough Youth League, for best club. The Junior match finished 1-1; while Acorns beat March Foods 3-2. Many thanks to Wisbech Town for providing the venue.
