Deeping United secretary Emma Pearce has been recognised for the valuable service that she helps provide to the community.
Emma - who is also the club's welfare officer - has received an accolade from the High Sheriff of Lincolnshire as an appreciation for her efforts.
Michael Scott, the High Sheriff, made the trip to United's base in Deeping St James where he presented Emma with her award.
He said: "Emma is the driving force behind the club which offers opportunities for boys and girls, males and females from Under 5s right through to adult veterans teams.
"She actively engages with the Lincolnshire FA in driving forward numerous projects and initiatives aimed at providing new opportunities and improving existing provision.
"Her commitment, tenacity, drive, enthusiasm and professionalism is and always has been unwavering during the most testing of times.
"This has led to the club growing, developing, and expanding to become a cornerstone of the community and grassroots football in Lincolnshire."
United were only formed in 2018 and already have more than 270 players on their books. They recently gained the status of a KickItOut Equality Chartered club.
