The passing of highly respected former Northumberland FA Vice-President Les Todd has left a considerable hole in grassroots football in this County.
Les’ passion and commitment has driven this County forward during his three decades of magnificent service.
To commemorate this, the Board of the Association have decided it is only right to rename our Senior Benevolent Bowl, the NFA Les Todd Senior Benevolent Bowl.
The competition and fund which provides support for players and referees who suffer serious injury while participating, was central to Les’ work with the Association and will provide a lasting tribute to his unwavering commitment to football in Northumberland.
Donations are still being welcomed to Cancer Research UK and the Northumberland FA Benevolent Fund in Les memory. He will be sorely missed.
