SAFC Deaf manager named Coach of the Year

Treble winning manager Scott Garthwaite is celebrating after scooping a prestigious prize at the North-East Disability Sports Awards (NEDSA) recently.

Scott was crowned Coach of the Year in March for his outstanding contribution to Sunderland Deaf AFC on and off the pitch during the 2016-17 season with the team winning the English Deaf League Northern League, League Cup and Challenge Cup in his first year.

His commitment and support extends to planning match travel and washing the kit alongside encouraging his players to develop their skills and fitness which has helped them receive international honours with the England and Scotland Deaf teams.

I couldn’t believe it when my name was read out. I feel very honoured to win the award, but this is also for the team as their commitments has been amazing.
