Ever wondered how you work out what kit and gear you need to get more than 460 youngsters onto the football pitch for a successful season?
It’s a tough job. And few would know more about it than Cam and Kere McKinnon who have done a sterling job this year, keeping track of team kits, balls and all the equipment required to keep our junior players ready for action.
The couple carried out a comprehensive stocktake before the season started and after making sure all kit and gear was allocated for the winter season, they’ve begun the job of working out what we need for next season (and beyond).
The McKinnons are among the more than 100 volunteers who collectively contribute more than 30,000 hours a year of unpaid work to keep Cambridge FC running all-year.
For their efforts, they are our latest winners of an Onyx Cambridge-sponsored Volunteer of the Week award.
They receive a $50 voucher from our partner Onyx Cambridge.
