Saffron Walden Town are dedicating their home match against Fakenham Town on Saturday to the late Paul Daw, who passed away last year aged 66.

The club held a testimonial for Daw in February 2017, to acknowledge his 50-year association with Walden as a player and official.

A crowd of over 350 was in attendance on the day, including a special visitors in the form of Sir Trevor Brooking, as the club named a stand after Daw.

Daw served as club secretary for many years and at the time of his death was club president and member of the board.

Saffron Walden Town club chairman Jonathan Scripps said: “He is sorely missed by colleagues, players and supporters.

“On the 24th we shall be having a minutes round of applause, in front of his wife Marguerite and his family.”
