After 17 years of dedication to the club, Argyle Trust’s Colin Bunney has been awarded the club’s Community Captain.
The position of Community Captain for Plymouth Argyle has been awarded to Colin Bunney in recognition of his outstanding contributions to the Argyle Trust over the past 17 years, during which time he has worked there both as a paid employee and as a volunteer, delivering coaching to youth and disability participants aged two to 16.
As part of the festivities commemorating the 30th anniversary of the Premier League, the honorific of “Community Captain” will be bestowed upon more than one hundred members of the general public who have made an exceptional contribution to their club and the community in which they live.
The prize was given to Bunney at the Manadon Sports Hub, which is visited by more than 30,000 people on an annual basis, contains a grass pitch, a floodlit 3G pitch, and a new pavilion with four changing rooms.
It was opened in 2019 on a location that had been abandoned for many years thanks to a donation of over 800,000 pounds from the Football Foundation, which was sponsored by the Premier League, The FA, and the government.
Mark Lovell, the CEO of the Argyle Trust, and Gary Sawyer, a former captain of Plymouth Argyle, were the ones who made the presentation of a Premier League Community Captain pennant and a special captain’s armband to Bunney.
Sawyer remarked that “naming Colin as the club’s Community Captain is an opportunity for us to demonstrate appreciation for Colin and his 17 years of incredible work with the Argyle Trust helping and inspiring young people.” “Naming Colin as the club’s Community Captain is an opportunity for us to demonstrate appreciation for Colin and his incredible work with the Argyle Trust,”
“Colin just has this tremendous passion and zest for football, which makes him a more than worthy captain in our opinion,” said the rest of the team.
Bunney stated that it was a great honor for him to be acknowledged by his coworkers in such a manner as a Community Captain. Before I became a coach, I played football from the age of five until I was 50. During that time, I was completely obsessed with the game.
“I don’t do what I do for the praise or the accolades because I enjoy my profession. There is a tremendous group of people working together at the Trust, and there are opportunities for everyone to get involved, which is something that I believe is fantastic.
