Spaghetti Gazetti editor Pete Millington met the new Mayor of Dudley, Councillor Melvyn Mottram recently at the annual awards night of Halesowen Community Rangers FC, for whom Pete runs their blog and for whom his wife Theresa is the club secretary.
Pete was presented with an Aston Villa umbrella for his support for HCR throughout their very successful season when the Under 15s team won the Stourbridge and District League division 3 without losing a single match all season.
Pete and Theresa's son Patrick is captain of the team and a solid defender.
Pete said "It was a pleasure to meet the Mayor of Dudley and we would like to thank him for attending our awards night and presenting awards to our very special team of young players. I can now look forward to parading around the football pitches of the Black Country this winter with my Villa umbrella".
