The David Wray memorial match

Late last year St Albans City Youth and St Albans lost one of its biggest advocates in David Wray.

David, 61, was well known across the district and throughout the county for his tireless work within and outside of the club, promoting football and encouraging younger generations through various programmes, including coaching. He gave support and advice to many other clubs and organisations in and around the County including Herts Sports Partnership, Active St Albans and Special Olympics.
