The Bones Award

The Bones Award

The Council of the Central Wales FA has resolved to establish a prestigious annual award in memory and in honour of Kevin Jenkins affectionally known as ‘Bones’.

The Kevin Jenkins Award to be known as the Bones Award will be awarded for outstanding contribution to club football in Central Wales and may be awarded to players/officials/match officials volunteers and supporters. The inaugural award will be made at the end of season 2023/24. Clubs, leagues and organisations may recommend individuals for the award which will be decided upon by a committee including league secretaries. The standard will be high.

‘Bones’ will always be remembered for his involvement with Penrhyncoch Football Club, He played more than 1,250 games for them and also played for Penybont, Dewi Stars, Rhayader, Ffostrasol, Llandysul, Aber Reserves, Aber Youth, Bont and Goginan. He was also a fully qualified referee.

At Penrhyncoch Football Club he fulfilled every role possible; 1st team manager, 2nd team manager, 3rd team manager, ladies team manager, player, secretary, treasurer, groundsman, kit man, first aid and chairman.

He was a respected coach having gained his C and B coaching badges and coached in the Aberystwyth Town FC Academy for 10 years or more. He also gave his time to working with and helping to develop Aberystwyth Town FC Ladies.

His love of the game and his commitment was infectious; he always promoted the game in the right way, making a positive impact upon young players and we hope that this new annual award will be fitting recognition of the outstanding contribution Bones himself made to club football in Central Wales.
