Gerry Spaven Memorial Trophy
Gerry’s son Steve has donated a trophy to York RI Football Club in memory of his father. It will be called the “Gerry Spaven Memorial Trophy” and will be awarded to coaches/volunteers/parents twice during the Football year in recognition for contribution to football.
Coaches will be asked to nominate someone and the Football committee will decide who will receive the trophy.
A note from Peter Swann:-
“I knew Gerry very well from my years at the York carriage works , York RI football also when I dealt with him when he had his own trophy business.
Gerry’s knowledge of football and other sports he was involved with was fantastic and was a true gentleman to have known and I also remember meeting a ‘ young ‘ Steve when visiting Gerry at home to collect trophies from him .
It’s great that Steve has thought of York R I football section to donate this trophy which is a fitting tribute to Gerry. “
