Peter Conroy, who works for Glendale in a contract with Liverpool City Council at Walton Soccer Centre, was given his award at IoG Saltex.

He was named Groundsman of the Year in the Step 7 category of the National League System.

Conroy has been working at Walton Lifestyles Sports and Soccer Centre since it opened in 1999.

“I absolutely love the job because being outdoors is great, whatever the weather,” he said.

“This achievement is not just down to me, but is a reflection of the hard work of the whole team.

“We all get a real sense of satisfaction seeing youngsters playing on the fields that we look after.”
