Former club skipper and current player assistant-manager at Wimborne Town Football Club, Paul Roast was honoured by the Dorset County FA last week.
Roast received the Outstanding Service following his years of service at Cuthbury. He first joined Wimborne town back in the year 2000.
“This award was totally unexpected, but of course I am honoured to receive it,” he said.
Meanwhile Wimborne Town had a difficult return to action last Saturday after over a month without playing a game.
The Magpies looked rusty against visitors Bishops Cleeve who dominated the first half and went in 2-1 up at the interval. Wimborne stepped up a gear in the second period but could not breach a resolute defence.
The game saw James Stokoe finally end his three-game suspension and the frontman is now available for Wimborne’s forthcoming games.
Stokoe could well feature in Tuesday (4 February) night’s game at Stratford town and this coming Saturday which sees the Magpies away again, this time at Didcot Town.
