Weʼve raised £330 to The Eric Kershaw Football Memorial Trophy Fund
- Funded on Friday, 6th October 2017
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Eric was a lifelong Huddersfield Town fan from Golcar and devoted 29 years of his life to the Huddersfield Junior Football League, he was dedicated to every aspect of helping the age-group game grow in this area.
He was official photographer of the West Riding County FA and was junior football and cricket correspondent for the Huddersfield Daily Examiner, his words and pictures featuring for many years in the newspaper and on line.
In 2009, Eric was diagnosed with cancer, but he continued all his work and, even up to the weekend before his passing on August 30 in Huddersfield Royal Infirmary, he was working on the divisions and fixtures for this season.
Eric set up a 'trophy' competition for teams in the lower divisions that lost in the first round of the cup, all donations will go towards providing a permanent Eric Kershaw Memorial Trophy for this competition so his name and memory will continue to be a valued part of the Junior Football League.
