Following the passing of our chair, Fred Conway, and after communication with and approval from his family, Cumberland FA would like to declare that The Cumberland Cup will be renamed, in his memory, as The Fred Conway Cumberland Cup for at least the remainder of the 2022-23 and 2023-24 seasons.
All those who knew Fred would know how much he cared about this particular competition and how hard he worked as Chairman to ensure he upheld its prestige, its history and ensured its legacy.
Fred oversaw the appointments of match officials to games in the Cumberland Cup and would often refer to it as ‘his competition’, so much was his pride and passion for the county's premier cup competition.
We therefore believe that this is a fitting tribute that goes someway to showing how much he meant to us as a County FA and how much he will be missed, to rename the competition in his memory.
