Torquay United AFC are delighted to announce that club volunteer Aaron Duffy has been recognised as the Vanarama National League’s ‘Volunteer of the Month’ for January.

Every month, three winners are chosen from each of the three National League divisions to highlight the outstanding contribution made by the unsung heroes across the 68 clubs making up the National League, National League South & National League North.

Duffy began volunteering on matchdays at Torquay United AFC in Autumn 2019.

After initially assisting the club by welcoming officials and guests to Plainmoor on reception, December saw him begin working behind the scenes at the club on a daily basis.

Ever willing and always eager, nothing is too much trouble for Aaron. Whether it is serving in the club shop, dealing with queries over the phone, or giving supporters a guided tour around the ground, every visitor to Plainmoor is greeted with his customary warm welcome and cheery smile.

During the last couple of months, Aaron has not only developed his established skills, but also pushed himself to gain new ones. Recent weeks have seen him assisting our ticket office and administrative team, adding to his natural customer service background.

Aaron has become a hugely respected and much-admired member of team during his short time with the club, and we are proud to count him as a valued member of the Torquay United family.

Congratulations Aaron!
