Military Cross and FA Cup ‘cannot be compared’
Corporal Mark Ward has been awarded the Military Cross just weeks after presenting the FA Cup but says both are “phenomenal events”.
The soldier was given the award because of his “inspirational leadership” as a section commander in Afghanistan. Cpl Mark Ward, of the Mercian Regiment, also presented the FA Cup to Manchester City, who he supports, after they beat Stoke City 1-0.
The trophy has previously been presented by the Queen, Winston Churchill, Sir Bobby Robson and Prince William.
