Steve Frost Honoured at Buckingham Palace
Wilpshire Wanderers club chairman Steve Frost was honoured at Buckingham Palace on the 7th October as part of the Football Association's 150 anniversary celebrations. Steve received a medal for his services to grass roots football from the Football Association president, the Duke of Cambridge, and then watched a match between Civil Service FC and Polytechnic FC on the lawns of Buckingham Palace.

Congratulations Steve, all of us at Wilpshire Wanderers are grateful for the time and effort you put into the club and this recognition of your hard work is richly deserved.
