Keith nets ace award

A 62-year-old Belper man has won a prestigious award for his dedication to Duffield Lawn Tennis Club.

Keith Murcutt scooped the volunteer of the year accolade at this year’s Derbyshire Tennis Awards.

Also, the Duffield venue was named club of the year.

Belper-born Wimbledon referee Andrew Jarrett, a guest of honour at the ceremony, said: “Derbyshire tennis is a family and it’s nice for all of them to get together and have a bit of recognition for their hard work.”
