Harry Lawton Trophy

   

Harry Lawton

Harry Lawton - Founder Member

The Harry Lawton Trophy was donated to the Club by his widow, and is dedicated in his memory. It is a fitting tribute to someone who was a founder member, committee man and a Past Treasurer of the Club.

It is presented to person(s) who, in the opinion of the committee, have provided some service to the Club. It has been awarded for many, and various, reasons such as recognition of many years service, as a reward/encouragement for a Young Player of the Year, or to a hard working Club member.

We think Harry would approve of all this.
