Marvellous Mowlem wins prestigious national coaching award ⚽
The much-loved Dorchester football coach Bob Mowlem has been honoured with the accolade of Community Coach of the Year – Children and Young People (supported by the Children's Coaching Collaborative) at the 25th annual #UKCoachingAwards
Overwhelmed to be announced as an award winner, Mowlem reflected: “It’s unbelievable for me, I’m really chuffed.
“It was such professional company present at the awards, I really thought I was just here for the occasion, and I never dreamt that I would be chosen as a winner. It was a huge shock for me.
“The most important thing is to work with the kids, to encourage them to stick at it, whoever you are working with and whatever problems they might be having.
“I’ve even seen kids I’ve coached bring their own kids many years later, which is amazing for me and making those long-lasting connections.
“A great coach is one who listens to what the children have got to say, and everything they do is for the child’s best interests.”
