Staffordshire FA handed Paul Clowes the Grassroots Coaching Mentoring Award last night at Birchall Playing fields.
Paul "Jack" Clowes is well known to Leek Town fans having notched up 369 appearances and a key member of Neil Bakers successful side of the 90s - and appearing at Wembley.
After finishing his playing careeer Paul originally stepped in to help his own sons team, which led him to get his level 1. He then went on to manage the team for 4 years until it disbanded, however he also became an FA Coaching Mentor helping many grassroots Clubs in the Staffordshire area.
Paul is standing down from Coaching this year but he will be helping his son Aiden who is taking over the Leek Town Under 16 team.
Jon Eeles commented "I have a long personal relationship with Paul and the Clowes family, and all at the Club are so pleased that he has received this recognition for the work he has done in our Junior section and as a Grassroots Coaching Mentor, it could not happen to a nicer person."
Paul will be presented officially with his award at Stoke Citys pre season friendly against Leicester City.
We wish Paul all the very best and congratulate him on this award - well done Jack.
