Shortly before the match between RAPTC and AGC kicked off, Captain Kev Haley was presented with the first DASCB Coin. The Director Army Sport Control Board, Maj Gen Shaun Burley CB MBE attended the match to present the coin.
Capt (MAA) Kevin Haley RAPTC has represented service football at the highest level for 2 decades this includes Corps (RAPTC & AMS), Army (various levels) and UK Armed Forces.
Since retiring from playing, he has taken on the roles of RAPTC FC manager and Army Senior Team Secretary, this clearly demonstrates his dedication and passion to serve both Corps and Army Football.
Away from the pitch, Capt (MAA) Haley has impressively managed the Army FA Roadshow, delivering clinics to schools and communities around the country and he has promoted the sport passionately.
Capt (MAA) Haley organised the first Army female 5-a-side competition and has been instrumental in supporting numerous OSV’s at various levels and he has achieved all this and more, whilst continuing to be successful in his career.
He is widely acknowledged within the Army Football family as a superb role model and is a POC for many players and coaches. Although his preferred role is ‘a solid’ centre midfielder who isn’t shy of a 50/50 challenge and thrives on the physical aspect of the game, he has only ever received 1 yellow card in his service history which spans well over 500 caps.
A fine example of someone who is competitive but fair and epitomises the qualities of a sportsman and symbolises what it is to be a sportsman, role model, leader, manager and coach. Moreover, he is one of the good guys, who has been selfless in ensuring he has supported the UK Armed Forces over many years, in many countries and simply excelled!
