Bridlington Town Council has given its 2017 Citizen of Honour Award to Pauline Gibson.
She has spent almost 40 years helping Bridlington Rangers junior football club, working tirelessly as administrator, Treasurer, Secretary and chief kit washer.
The citation said: “Pauline has played a key role as one of the main driving forces behind the club’s success and has rarely received the recognition she deserves. Without Pauline the club would never have been able to enjoy the recent accolade of 290 playing members in one season and achieve the very prestigious East Riding County FA Development Club of the Year Award.”
Town councillors made the presentation at their meetng last Wednesday.
