More Awards news
Some of our most prestigious awards are named after stalwarts of the past that are no longer with us; and it is pleasing that long-departed former manager Tony Marshall is to have a memorial cup named in his honour that will be presented each year at Awards Day. Tony was manager in the 1960s when football was almost entirely played on a Saturday before the advent of a local minor league and of course the Ashford & District Sunday League.
The cup is being sponsored by relative, Dawn Smith, and The Patron, whose first manager at the Green was Tony. In a full circle, Dawn’s son Kieron now plays for the Green in our new Under 14 side.
Former club people recognised with major awards include Tommy Stafford, Bill Mickelborough, Ernie Wedge, Peter Knott and Nicola Kingham.
