We are delighted to announced that Andy Dye has won our Coach of the Year (Disability Pathway) as part of England Football’s Grassroots Football Awards.
This Award looks to recognise a coach in the disability game who is inclusive, encouraging and inspiring when it matters most.
Andy set up the Wick Dynamos Inclusive team back in 2017, originally to give his nephew Alfie (who has congenital cytomegalovirus and autism spectrum disorder) a team to play for.
Since then, the team has grown from just the three players to a huge number now registered, spanning three age ranges, Under-12s, Under-16s and Under-18s/Adult.
Not content with giving up his time to coach and manage each week at training and league matches, Andy also steps up to play in goal for the team when needed!
Alfie and the team now have a club they feel they belong to and a team they feel a part of.
