Len's son, Malcolm, has passed the following message to us. There will be an unattended funeral, on the advice of the Funeral directors, at a date to be arranged soon. A memorial service will be held when some form of normality resumes.

It is with great sadness that I have to inform you all of the passing of our former secretary, Len Martin. Len took charge of the league from Frank Burton in 1986 when we had 3 divisions and almost 40 teams. When I took over from Len in 2011 he helped me enormously by passing on his wealth of knowledge. Len remained active as referee secretary for a number of years after this and remained as treasurer of the St Luke's committee right up until it disbanded last year. Len was a huge part of local football firstly as a referee and then in his role as an administrator. He will be missed greatly by all that had the pleasure of working with and knew him.
