Athletics: Charlie is UK's top clubman.

STALWART Coventry Godiva Harriers official Charlie Kelly was rewarded for close to half a century of service when he was named national club volunteer of the year at the UK Athletics awards dinner in Birmingham.

Kelly, who is the club's treasurer and manager of the senior women's track and field team, was presented with a trophy, cheque and a magnum of Champagne after beating off candidates from the rest of the country in a panel vote following his nomination by the West Midlands.

"I'm very pleased and it's nice to be recognised," said Kelly, who has held positions throughout the club in his 48 years as an official.
