A FOOTBALL tournament in memory of former Welsh League star Stephen Callan will kick-off next week.
Callan, better known as Weaver, sadly died last year, aged 50. The well known and popular former Welsh League Pembroke Boro skipper was one of the best defenders to grace the game of his generation and was highly respected.
His son, Jamie, who plays for Monkton Swifts, has been busy arranging the tournament that will be known as the Weaver Callan Memorial tournament.
Four teams will take part, Monkton Swifts, Pembroke Borough, Pennar Robins and Hundleton. During his illustrious playing career Weaver played for three out of the four teams taking part. The only team he did not play for was Hundleton, who had only formed when he finished playing.
"I think this tournament would have been just the sort of thing that dad would have liked," said Jamie, "he loved playing football and this is our way of never forgetting him."
The draw has taken place and all games will kick-off at 6.30pm.
On Monday, August 12, Monkton Swifts vs Pembroke Borough at Monkton Lane; Wednesday, August 14, Pennar Robins vs Hundleton at Bush Camp.
The winners of both matches will then meet in the final on Friday, August 16, at Monkton Lane.
