John Stubbs awarded his "Towns Ultimate Honour"

Following in the footsteps of his Grandfather and Great Grandfather, John Stubbs will toss the ball away from the plinth at Shaw Croft, Ashbourne Royal Shrovetide Football match on Ash Wednesday.

John's career showing his "Coldeaton" Jersey herd spans some 50 years during which he has had great success. With sport being his other passion in life it is all the more appropriate that John has been recognised with this honour for his contribution to the community.

Below is a photograph of the ball personalised especially for John, depicting his beloved Jersey breed. Congratulations John, we very much hope you enjoy your day.
