Crewe FC is delighted to announce that their Head of Football Development, Danny Massey has been awarded the Cheshire FA Coach of the Year Award for 2019. As part of the FA’s Grassroots Football Awards, Danny has not only been formally recognised for his contribution to the Club, but for the active role he plays within the local community. The Cheshire FA, who will host an awards night in July, released this statement along with the announcement as to why Danny have been given such a prestigious award; “Danny is a fundamental part of what Crewe do, instilling the FA’s values across all phases. He works tirelessly with the coaches to develop and deliver sessions and is always available to support others. The continued progression of the Club and the exceptional level of provision Crewe FC provide to the local community at a grassroots level is primarily due to the work Danny does. He sets the examples others aspire to achieve, both in the way he conducts himself and the way he engages with all the players. His preparation and meticulous planning ensures every child at the Club has the opportunity to reach and fulfil their potential. Danny has helped develop the Club from one adult senior team to 26 teams in the space of 3 years. He is continually supporting events to raise money for charities and is a fantastic member of his local community”. Danny Massey was delighted with the award; “I feel honoured to have been nominated for this award, and truly humbled to have received it. Crewe FC is my club and has been a huge part of my life for the past 20 years. I am privileged to work alongside other fantastic coaches, and with a supportive committee that share my passion for the provision of quality, affordable football for all. Without the likes of Steve Parker and Andy Aspinall, my role would be unachievable, so I would like to thank them for helping me to bridge the gap between academy football standard of coaching and grassroots football. Finally, it’s important to recognise that the Crewe FC family is special and unique; I could not wish to surround myself with a better group of people - thank you to those that nominated me. Our job is not finished yet. We will always push to be better and will continue to be the Club that others aspire to”. A fantastic achievement. Well done Danny. #TogetherStronger #CoachOfTheYear
