The Chairman and Hon Secretary (Gary Sutton and John Mulhall) were present at Boston RA Meeting on Monday 9th Jan 2017 to present Terry Knott with the Richard Taylor LCRA Award for services to refereeing in Lincolnshire over the past 30 years and more.
Well done Terry for all the work you do for Boston FL and all your other referee duties over the past decades and more to come.
Thanks to Alistair Wilson (Chairman Boston RA) and the rest of Boston RA for a warm welcome and interesting meeting with presentation by our Chairman which was a "Pointless TV Show” style competition for seeking knowledge of famous Referees and the Laws of Football.
Next up was a joint LFA and LCRA awards session at Grimsby RA on Monday 23 Jan 2017. Local RA branch members turned out on freezing foggy night to see their local members, David Haigh, Steve Wright and Tony Drinkell (absent) receive framed photos of the past event at LFA’s AGM in July 2016 to go with their medals.
David Cass was also honoured at the LFA 2016 AGM but received his award for Services to Refereeing in Lincolnshire from the LFA at this local meeting from Michael Brader, RDO and John Mulhall LFA Council Member.
The LCRA Stan Ford Award was then presented to Alex Sawden, the new Grimsby RA secretary and Lincolnshire’s most promising and improved referee in the Development Group for 2015-16.
The award was donated by Grantham RA in the 1990’s by the late Stan Ford who refereed in Lincolnshire for over 30 years. Gary Sutton, Lincoln’s EFL Football League Referee and Chairman of LCRA with responsibility for the County’s Development Group of Referees presented Alex with his Stan Ford Trophy.
