WALL Heath's Kewford Eagles have been wallowing in further recognition after Jane Beach won the Birmingham County FA's prize for outstanding contribution to disability football.

Jane has become one of the driving forces behind Kewford's thriving disability section after getting involved with the club with her autistic son.

She is also secretary for the Birmingham Ability Counts League.

Lynn Boleyn, charity trustee at Kewford, said: "Jane works tirelessly with the various teams. It was due to her passion and commitment that Kewford Eagles received the ME2 Award, the highest given by Mencap to organisations for the disabled."

She was presented with her prize at the FA's St Georges Park last month.

At the same time, 20-year-old referee Ross Ensor, manager of Kewford Eagles Under-11 girls side, was voted Birmingham County's Young Volunteer of the Year.

Ross was one of Dudley's Olympic torch carriers and also sits on the Birmingham County FA's Youth Council.

The awards are the latest obtained by Kewford Eagles, who unveiled their new Wall Heath headquarters complete with 11 football pitches, changing rooms, showers and toilets earlier this year.

Last year, the club scooped the prestigious Black Country Sport and Physical Activity Community Club of the Year prize; and in 2012 Kewford clinched the Queens Award for Voluntary Service.
