David Wilson, who is secretary of the YMSV York Minor League and a volunteer of the grassroots game for over 40 years, received the 2018 FA and McDonald’s Charter Standard League of the Year Award earlier this week.
David has been secretary of the league for over 25 years and is unwavering in his commitment. He truly is the Mr York Minor League.
He is a diligent secretary, having worked for clubs in the past, and knows the league’s ethos. He is efficient and yet amenable with all club representatives, getting the job done so effectively. David is respected by all clubs and does his job in an unassuming way, whilst maintaining a friendly manner.
David’s level of commitment to the league makes him a local hero for grassroots youth football in York (including Malton, Selby and Pickering areas). He is the glue for the league and a friendly, personable face to all clubs. He is always fair to clubs and gives them the time they need.
There’s no doubt that his impact upon York’s youth football scene has been immense over such a long period.
After receiving the recognition, David said: “It’s nice to be recognised. We have a hard-working committee and lots of clubs, as well as over 100 teams. At the last time of counting, there were over 1,600 boys and girls playing in the league. Having this recognition is very nice.”
