The English Schools’ FA recently received news that Midlands Council Member, Trustee and long standing Schools’ Football ambassador, Paul Rickard passed away suddenly from a Pulmonary Embolism on the 18 May 2020.
Many of you will have encountered Paul over the years, whether as part of the U18 England Schoolboys’ selection process, through his work at Worcestershire CSFA (and formerly Hereford & Worcester), or as part of a National Final awards ceremony, at which he presented many medals and trophies to national finalists at venues across the country.
An obituary has been written by Paul’s ESFA colleagues and you can read it here.
The ESFA would like to pass on our condolences to Paul’s wife, Ann and two children, Matthew and Emma at this incredibly difficult time.
