Development Charter Standard Club of the Year Presentation(September 27, 2011)
Tintwistle Athletic has been going from strength to strength both on and off the field. Last season the club achieved Development Charter Standard, the only club in Glossopdale to achieve this. Earlier this year the club were awarded with The FA Respect fair play award across its boys teams. The players, coaches and parents have broke the mould and shown that football can combine skill, passion and winning without tantrums, bad language or foul play.
The hard work of everyone at the club has recently been rewarded by winning the Development Club of the Year Award for the whole of Derbyshire.
‘This was a proud moment’ said U11 coach Kevan Brelsford who received the club’s award at the presentation at Pride Park, home of Derby County this week. ‘None of this could be done without the help of local people who volunteer so much’. ‘We also have to thank all our sponsors who provide the kit and equipment and keep the costs so low for the players’.
