Heels no bar to secretary's skills!

Frickley Athletic secretary Ruth Simpson was winning plaudits for her skills and touch after honouring the EVO-STIK League club's Polish keeper Sebastian Malkowski on Tuesday night.

The EVO-STIK League South club's popular secretary was hailed on Twitter on Tuesday night by fans at Westfield Lane after showing off her skills before the club's 2-1 defeat at the hands of Cleethorpes Town.

One fan on social media reckoned the Blues should sign the official up after she cleared the pitch of the balls after the pre-match warm-up with ease despite being clad in her trademark high heels, @SpencerFearn tweeting: "Amazing ball control in those heels last night @Ruthi_B Sign her on."

Simpson congratulated 28-year-old former Wisla Tczew, Olimpia Sztum, Lechia Gdansk, Bytovia Bytow, Zawisza Bydgoszcz stopper Malkowski after presenting him with an extra bottle for his drinks cabinet to celebrate his milestone 100th appearance, pictured, tweeting: "Congrats to 'The Pole in the Goal' on your 100th appearance for Frickley. Take a bow Sebastian Malkowski ⚽️thanks for the pic @TheOnionBag1."
