Officials at Horncastle Town Football Club have praised Pete Nagle after he was named the Sills and Betteridge League’s Secretary of the Year.

A club spokesman said: “The role of secretary is one of the most important behind the scenes, a vital role allowing the club tick over on a daily basis.

“Pete is always there to check and double check the final details so that the players, management and chairman can smoothly get on with their jobs.

“We are delighted that Pete’s hard work and attention to detail has been recognised and we would like to highlight that in just his second year in the role.

“Winning the away is an honourable achievement, coming up against many more experienced secretaries from club’s across the county.

“We would like to thank Pete for his hard work and hope he continues in the crucial role in the club for many years to come.”

Nagle was presented with the award by chairman Keith Weaver at the league’s annual meeting.

Meanwhile, Town have confirmed the appointment of Andrew Fenn is their new reserve team boss.

He will take charge of the team next season in the Lincoln and District Saturday Football League.

Fenn, who managed Boston and District League outfit Mareham United Reserves last season, replaces Jamie Lamming who wants to focus on his playing commitments.

One of Fenn’s first jobs will be arranging the pre-season friendlies to prepare his squad for the beginning of the league campaign on August 30.
