Spennymoor Town Manager Jason Ainsley has been named Coach/Mentor of the Year by The Gazette at their annual Gazette Sports Awards.
The awards were held on Thursday 20 October evening at Teeside University. Jason was notified of his nomination two weeks ago and was thrilled to have been recognised.
He said: "I am delighted to have won the award as it means all the hard work that everyone connected to the club has put in over the years is being recognised. Together, we've not only put Spennymoor Town Football club on the map locally but nationally as well.
"I would like to thank everyone connected to the club both past and present for helping me achieve this recognition."
Congratulations to Jason and thank you to The Gazette for the recognition they've given him and the club.
