Weymouth FC are very proud and excited to introduce The Ron Moscrop Cup.
This Weymouth FC, youth legacy was founded as a 90th birthday present to former Weymouth FC player Ron from his loving family to celebrate not only being a fabulous ninety year old, but his dedication to football through playing and supporting many local teams in Dorset.
The Ron Moscrop Cup will be awarded to a Weymouth FC Youth player on an annual basis. Managers and coaches from both the boys and girls sections will nominate one player at the end of the season, from their team each year for the trophy for ‘Outstanding Effort and Dedication’. The nominees and reasons for their nominations will be put to a panel made with the Moscrop family to select a winner with the runners up also receiving a smaller prize.
Ron himself, accompanied by his beautiful wife and son Chris joined us at the stadium this morning to hand over the magnificent cup. The cup will be accompanied with a leaflet detailing Ron’s time with Weymouth FC which is an interesting read including details of how he played in a cup match on his wedding day!
It was an honour to meet Ron and he had a bit of advice for one of our left wingers in our under 14 team which is where Ron played himself. He even gave us a little dance on the pitch to display his excitement! Priceless!
