Women's Football News
Long serving Bill Godward has been honoured for his services to the game by the Durham County FA.
Over the last 40 years, Bill has been involved in football one way or another, but always as a volunteer and for the love of it.
He started in 1976 with his daughter Tina who wanted to play football, so he formed Notts County Ladies. He then moved to the North East with his wife Pauline, whom he met through football.
Bill took over the five-a-side team at Sunderland while Pauline played for the club and this became a very successful establised 11-a-side club with Bill and David O'Neill as Secretary. Bill had five years on the Women's FA Alliance committee and championed the North East, when and wherever he could.
He still keeps his interest by watching women's games on a Sunday. He has been in bad health lately and was 74 in January but, even now, he is looking for a local club he could get involved with to pass on his experience.
The award is the first for services to football that he has received from his peers.
