Vote for Glenn in FA Community Awards
24 July 2015|Tottenham Hotspur
Glenn Weaver, former Chairman of Tottenham Hotspur Ladies FC, who sadly passed away in February this year, has been nominated for a posthumous FA Community Award for his outstanding contribution to community football.
With thousands of entries, Glenn is one of eight finalists nominated for The People’s Award – Outstanding Contribution to Community Football. Please join us in voting for Glenn here before the closing date on Friday, July 31.
The FA Community Awards recognise and reward people across the country that make a difference to grassroots football in their community – those like Glenn who have dedicated their lives to developing the next generation of footballing talent.
Glenn worked tirelessly with Spurs Ladies from the very beginning when the club was formed as Broxbourne Ladies in 1985 before becoming Tottenham Hotspur Ladies in 1991.
As the club continued to grow, he played an integral role behind the scenes to help Spurs Ladies to where they are today.
Over the past three decades, Glenn’s passion for Ladies football saw him work at growing the Spurs Ladies to run three senior teams, a development side and teams at Under-17, Under-15, Under-14, Under-13, Under-11 and Under-10 levels.
In his role as Chairman, Glenn was involved in every facet of running the club, from administration, attending meetings and even stepping in to referee games when needed.
Karen Hills, Manager of Spurs Ladies, said: “Glenn dedicated his life to Spurs Ladies and I personally feel very honoured to have known such a caring, honest man. Winning this posthumous award would be a welcomed addition to Glenn’s legacy that lives on through Spurs Ladies. An irreplaceable man who will never be forgotten for all he has done for football colleagues, players, parents and coaching staff.”
