This week (3 to 9 June) is Volunteers' Week 2024.

Volunteers' Week is a time to say thank you to the millions of people across England who make football possible, and to recognise the fantastic contribution they make.

Each day during the week, we will be highlighting some of the great volunteers from Amateur FA football. Find out more about them below from members of their own clubs or organisations.

Iain Evans, Merton FC

Iain enables 100 or so adults to be able to play football each weekend. He organises the squads from the availability pool. Midweek pitch inspections, early morning trips to the pitches to hoover up puddles, runs the bar if people stay late and sorts out fixtures out. Most recently he had the challenge of getting the facilities fixed which is no mean feat when the local council own the premises. 

Iain doesn’t ask for anything in return. He’s more than happy to do all of these things for no ask of reward or gain. He is a great person and truly deserving of recognition.
