AN AWARD-winning junior football league has launched an appeal to boost its administrative arm.

The Mercian Fortis Junior Football League, which draws its teams from Malvern, Worcester, Pershore, Evesham and Kidderminster amongst others, is looking for more assistance to keep it working efficiently.

Chairman George Silverman picked up a long service award for his 50-year dedication to local football as a player, referee and administrator last year and walked off with the local Outstanding Contribution to Community Football Award this time.

In addition, the competition picked up the FA Charter Standard League of the Year Award for 2017.

Anyone interested in helping the league should contact vice-chairman Ray Wright on 01684 566 619 or 07805 490501.
