Mayor's Award for Marrie
 Women's Football News 5 Jan 2011
Middlesbrough manager Marrie Wieczorek has been presented with a top award for her services to women's football in Middlesbrough. 
Marrie collected an Elected Mayor's Award from Middlesbrough Mayor Ray Mallon at a special ceremony in the Town Hall.
She joined the former Cleveland Spartans aged 19 in 1976 and became manager in the mid-90s. Career highlights include playing for England against Belgium in Ostend in 1980 and reaching the 1982 FA Women's Cup final.
Middlesbrough toured Italy in 1989-90 and 1990-91, and earlier this year made national headlines after being invited to visit North Korea.
The trip was set up by the British Embassy in recognition of the strong bonds the town forged with North Korea during the 1966 World Cup and the visit helped to strengthen a friendship spanning more than four decades.
Mr Mallon said: "Sport is hugely important in this town, in giving people a focus, keeping them healthy and keeping them out of trouble.
"Marrie's commitment and enthusiasm have opened up football to countless girls and young women and has undoubtedly changed many lives for the better.
"The trip to North Korea was the chance of a lifetime and Marrie and the team got an opportunity that not many westerners get.
"But it was also an opportunity to strengthen an important bond that dates back to the World Cup of 1966, and help ensure good relations continue into the future.
"Marrie and the team are great ambassadors for this town and the region as a whole, and that's why this award is so richly deserved."
Modest Marrie said: "I feel very honoured to have received this award from my home town. It's not something I expected and I feel very humble about it because my involvement with football is something I love doing.
"I am very proud to come from Middlesbrough and I'd just like to say thanks to the Mayor for recognising me in this way.
"I'm also proud to have been involved with the MFC Ladies team for more than 30 years, first as a player and then as manager. One of the undoubted highlights was our visit to North Korea in the autumn - it was an unbelievable experience."
