Midfielder Spencer McCall has won an award for producing the best NVQ portfolio in the country last season.
McCall received the Mike Johnson Award and a cheque for £250 from League Football Education as reward for his excellent efforts on his National Vocational Qualification in Achieving Excellence in Sports Performance Level 3 Diploma.
“I’m delighted for Spencer,” said tutor Stephen Payne, who also coached Spencer in the Stevenage Under-18 team. “He always applied himself professionally to the NVQ work and continually made his work relevant to his journey as an aspiring footballer.”
“Spencer’s level of detail and quality of work have contributed towards improving our standards of performance here at Stevenage FC which sets an excellent example for our existing scholars and really gives them something away from the football pitch to aspire towards.”
Having played for Stevenage reserves and in the successful FA Youth Cup run last season, Spencer was released by the club at the end of his two-year scholarship agreement and is now training with Wingate & Finchley in the Ryman League.
