Karen honoured with MBE

Karen honoured with MBE - 10 Dec 2010 - Women's Football NewsCardiff City Ladies Club Secretary, Karen Jones, was honoured at Buckingham Palace by Her Majesty the Queen as she received an MBE for her services to women's and girls' football in Wales.
 
A founder member of the football club back in 1975, Karen has devoted her time to the development of the sport, and the club has benefitted greatly from her enthusiasm.
 
Karen started her career with Cardiff City Ladies when they were known as Llanederyn Ladies and soon found her vocation as a goalkeeper. She was recognised by her country and earned over 30 caps before retiring from playing and taking up a coaching role within the club.
 
She gained her coaching qualifications and put them to good use by developing the skills of hundreds of youngsters over the years, both at Cardiff City and within the FAW Trust Centres of Excellence. She still enjoys coaching at the club and her enthusiasm inspires those around her and never seems to wane.
 
Cardiff City Ladies Club Chair, Kath Kavanagh says: "Cardiff City Ladies are delighted that Karen has at last been given the recognition that she deserves after 35 years of voluntary work with the club. Hundreds of youngsters have passed through the club over the years and I have no doubt that her enthusiasm and love of the game rubbed off on them."
 
Karen was at Buckingham Palace on Tuesday with her mum and closest supporter, Bertha Jones, and her friends, to receive her MBE from the Queen. She said: "The Queen wasn't aware that women's football was so popular but I put her right. It was a wonderful day and I was honoured to be recognised."
