Top award for Beer Albion groundsman Peter Adkin

Beer Albion Groundsman Peter Adkin has received the prestigious Groundsman of the Year award from the Devon County Football Association.

Peter has been maintaining Beer's football ground for over 20 years and the quality of the playing surface at The Furzebrake is testament to his dedication and skill, all provided on a voluntary basis.

It was no coincidence that last Saturday, Beer was one of the few grounds in the whole of Devon County where the pitch was playable after a week of heavy rain. Invariably during heavier winters than this, Peter has managed to get the game on when most of the County programme is washed out.

The occasion of his award was marked with a presentation by Bernard Leach, chairman of Devon County FA prior to last Saturday's home game with Elmore.

The award ceremony was also attended attended by Paul Morrison, Devon County FA chief executive, and Roland Brown, vice chairman of the Macron Devon and Exeter Football League.
