Nigel Burns has been crowned Lions’ 2014/5 Manager of the Year.
Following unprecedented success with his Junior side, Nigel becomes the first manager to receive this award outside of the senior section of the club.
Having been surprised with the presentation at the end of the Junior manager meeting, he was quick to praise others around him ‘from the boys to the parents, to the coaches, to Joel my assistant to everyone at the club and of course my wife Elisa who has to put up with a lot!’.
Nigel’s dedication to his team is only matched by that to the club as he runs our Junior section and certainly leads from the front.
