LEEK Ladsandads vice-chairman Jenny Findlar has been given an exclusive title as a reward for her service to the branch.

She has been involved with junior football for almost 40 years, and has been made the Leek association's life president.

Jenny got involved in junior football when living in Caverswall, where there were no facilities for youngsters. She and fellow parents spent two years setting up an area for the kids to play.

In 1985, after moving to Cheddleton, Jenny made the transition to Leek Ladsandads and since then, she has been a valuable asset to the association.

Jenny said: "I've been extremely proud to be part of Leek Ladsandads. We've come on leaps and bounds since I first arrived.

"Back then in 1985, I would have been collecting six children in my car on a Sunday morning, but now there are more parents involved."

During her time with Leek Ladsandads, Jenny has been secretary, treasurer, registrations secretary, chairman and now vice-chairman of the Leek branch. She is also a trustee of the league.

Jenny has also contributed to the running of Cheddleton Strikers and Leek Dominoes.

She had many crucial roles, including putting up and taking down goal nets, and washing strips.

Jenny said: "You can't do it on your own – you need a good chairman and committee. But everyone is vital, really.

"I look forward to many more years working with the members of Leek Ladsandads. Now I have the life presidency, I think I'm going to be involved forever! "
