End of an era

Quorn Juniors Football Club

With the Premier league fast approaching the end of another season – it might be worth thinking about where these Premiership Superstars started learning their trade?

In parks and on pitches all across the UK, volunteers give their time tirelessly to ensure so many children participate safely whilst playing the beautiful game.  Less than 0.2% of children who play junior football will go on to play professionally – which means that time spent acquiring life skills such as teamwork, responsibility and respect means that those giving up their time are not just creating footballers, but aiding in the development of children.

One such individual who has given of his time so freely for over 15 years is Quorn Juniors Football Club’s secretary, Stuart Broughton. After overseeing over 180 teams and supporting hundreds of youngsters, since the turn of the millennium, Stuart has decided to blow for ‘full-time’ on his role within the club. It would be fair to say that he has more than done his bit for the local community and is one of Quorn’s real unsung heroes. 

Scott Parker, the club chairman said “I’m sure everyone who is or has been connected with the club, whether it is as a parent, player, or coach would like to take the opportunity to say a huge thank you to Stuart. His impact on the development of youngsters in the area has been incredible”.

With Stuart leaving we are now actively seeking a new club secretary.
