BUNBURY'S Dave Burrows has been recognised for his long-standing services to coaching.
The popular coach was awarded a certificate from the Sky Sports Rewards and Recognition Scheme and will get funding to continue his work.
He was presented with his certificate by former England coach David Lloyd during last week's Old Trafford Test match.
A Sky Sports spokesman said: 'Dave is recognised throughout the county as one of its finest coaches.
'Despite the time-consuming running of his own business, he has dedicated hours of voluntary coaching at Bunbury as well as coaching Cheshire Youth squads.
'He is equally comfortable dealing with novice youngsters as with elite performers. He has been directly responsible in guiding players through county squads to Lancashire Academy and North of England representation.'
