Surrey FA has announced that Keith Boanas has been made an Honorary Member of the organisation, presented as recognition of his contribution to the County Football Association.
Surrey FA say that Boanas (pictured at work on a Level 2 Coaching Course) first began his relationship with them in 1997, when he was appointed in the voluntary role of County Coaching Representative. He held this role until the introduction of Football Development Officers in 2003, but his association continued with the Surrey FA as a Lead Tutor of coaching courses. Keith was also given the title of County Coach, which he held until The FA introduced the role of County Coach Developers.
“I am extremely happy and indeed deeply honoured to receive this recognition,” said Keith Boanas to surreyfa.com.
“I have always had the pleasure of working with a great team at Surrey FA office over the years and I am excited to see the new era begin at the fabulous new facilities and the further success of the organisation.”
The current Watford boss still delivers coaching courses for the Surrey FA, and is the President of the Surrey Football Coaches Association, a role previously held by Sir Bobby Robson.
“We’re delighted that Keith is now one of our Honorary Members – his hard work over the years has had a really positive impact on the Surrey FA and it’s great to be able to recognise his contribution”, said Caroline McRoyall, Chief Executive of Surrey FA.
