Stocksbridge Park Steels will now have more coverage of the club than ever following a gift from President Peter Kenney made in tribute to his late wife Marina.
Club President Peter Kenney volunteered alongside his wife Marina for three decades at the club. Mrs. Kenney volunteered in the club kitchen helping serve hungry football fans before later working alongside her husband in the committee welcoming guests and opposition directors. She would pass away in March, with the club paying tribute to her long service before the match against Cleethorpes Town. Peter Kenney is the President of Stocksbridge Park Steels and continues to attend games.
The club is now very grateful for a generous gift from Mr. Kenney which has been made in tribute to his late wife. This gift has allowed Stocksbridge to purchase new media equipment including their own camcorder. Currently, Stockbridge showcase their highlights and interviews with manager Ian Richards but this new equipment will allow more games to be filmed as well as exclusive behind the scenes films which will show fans how a non-league club is run.
Stocksbridge Park Steels Media Manager Adam Allcroft said: “Myself and the club would like to thank Peter Kenney for the generous gift which has allowed us to buy new media equipment.
“Both Peter and Marina have been fantastic volunteers for the club and are a model for all of us who work in non-league football. We are very grateful that Mr. Kenney continues to support the club by giving us this gift which will help us to improve the fan experience at Stocksbridge.
“With this new media equipment, we now have plans in place to increase the amount of video we provide. We want to show highlights of our other teams as well as provide more insight to the running of a non-league club.
“We already provide highlights of our first team, live commentary of YouTube channel and coverage on our website and social media channels. So with this new media equipment, we hope to take our coverage to the next level where football fans across South Yorkshire can always see what is happening at Stocksbridge Park Steels.”
