Receiving The Swansea Referees Society Colin Ashford Award from Vice Chairman Alan Gray is Mr Dave Savage.
On Monday the 28th of September Swansea Referees Society held our September meeting, to which we invited Mr Dave Savage to college the Colin Ashford award. This award is given annually by the Society to recognize individuals who have contributed greatly to local football in our area.

He was a founder member of Wern A.F.C. in 1973 and has been a player, secretary, manager, kit washer ( with his wife Lynne ) and is still involved as treasurer of the club. He joined committee of The Swansea Senior League in 1977 and served for 9 years as Registration secretary eventually becoming Chairman and President of the league and is now coming up to 38 years of unbroken service.
