Shanklin VYCC Footballers Dougie Stephens and Paul Biddlecombe received awards from the FA for playing Island Saturday League Soccer for six decades, at a presentation attended by the Island’s High Sheriff.

They also received congatulatory messages from former Saints forward Matt Le Tissier, specially commissioned shirts, and an anniversary cake.

The event formed part of the Seaside Voices project, which highlights the range of sporting activities in the town, and the pedigree of success seen locally, from 2000 Olympic Gold Medallist Louis Attrill, to Shanklin Cricketer Wally Hammond.

    SVYCC is a good facility for young people in Shanklin, and the football team gives old and young players a chance to take part in sport every week. I would like to see more sport in Shanklin, I know we have cricket and Bowls, but it would be good for young people.
