Des Beeney wins our club’s 16th Volunteer of the Week award

This season has been particularly busy for Cambridge club veteran Des Beeney.

After years of playing, coaching and serving in various administrative roles, he wanted to help the Reds make the most of their return to Northern League football after an absence of six years.

That saw him appointed as team manager for the Cambridge reserves, a team that’s now leading the Lotto NRFL second division reserves competition.

In recent years, Des has also been an active referee and going into this season was our club’s referees’ co-ordinator, a role which saw him encouraging new referees to seek qualification and acting as the club’s first point of contact with referees.

Des has become our 16th Volunteer of the Week award winner and receives a $50 voucher from our partner Onyx Cambridge.
