Academy Coach up for Award

27 September 2015

Club congratulate FA recognised Lee Benton.

Doncaster Rovers would like to congratulate development coach Lee Benton on his nomination for the FA’s ‘Volunteer of the Year’ award.

Lee, who has been with the club in a coaching capacity for 18 months, started as a volunteer for three months before progressing to the point where he is awaiting assessment on his UEFA ‘B’ licence next month.

“I received the award for all my hard work with my grassroots club Pontefract St Josephs JFC where I look after 4 grassroots teams,” he said.

“In July 2013 I wrote the club philosophy and ethos ready for the start of the 2014/15 season. So that everyone - players, parents and coaches - know what our brand is and how as a club we will implement it.

“In Feb 2014, after 5 months of making changes and implementing our development plan, our club was awarded FA Charter Standard Development Club status and continues to grow.”

Last year, Doncaster Rovers were delighted to pass the EPPP Audit.
