This award was first made in 1986, a year after Steve tragically died. He had been playing football for Old Salvos at Roxbourne Park when he fell awkwardly and lost conciousness. He passed away a week later. 

 

Steve epitomised what Old Salvos are all about. A tremendous sense of fun coupled with a desire to win and skillful, his early passing aged only 27 came as a massive shock to his many friends in Old Salvos. 

 

This is now the most prestigious award which can be given to an Old Salvo, recognising the efforts of an individual, voted by the Club members at or around the Annual Club Dinner, who has made an exceptional contribution to the running of the Club during that season. Fittingly, the first award was to Tony McCormack, long standing Club Chairman and one of Steve's teachers at the Salvatorian College. 

 

To this day, Steve's father, Gerry, usually attends the Annual Club Dinner to present the shield. His eloquent, emotional words of remembrance and thanks for Steve's life and association with Old Salvo's never fail to move a receptive audience.

The presentation of the Club awards takes place at an annual dinner. They commemorate the lives of Old Salvos tragically lost too early. 

 

Requiescat in pace. 

It was said of Glenn that once he tackled you, you stayed tackled. Glenn went to the school in the 1950's and became one of Old Salvos most popular members, playing for many years including the 1st XI until his untimely death from cancer in his 40's. 

 

This award is presented in his memory to the captain who the commitee considers has been the most effective that season - not just in achieving football success, but adhering to selection policy, quality of administration and promoting the spirit and long term success of the club. 

 

The awards dinner is usually attended each year by one or more of Glenn's three children - Leo, Louis and Louise - who present the trophy in his memory. 

Sean was a young man of great character and potential, who passed away following being hit by a car on his way home, having played for Old Salvos that Saturday afternoon.

 

A tragic loss to family and friends at only 23, the trophy was donated by the Callanan family for the Club to honour Sean's memory. 

 

This award is presented to the player under 23, who the captains consider to have the potential to be not just a strong player in the years to come but who also embodies the spirit of the club. Many of those  who have received this award have gone on to play 1st XI football and remained with the club for many years.

 

The trophy is normally presented by Gerry Callanan, Sean's cousin who donated the award, and/or Tom Rickard his eldest brother. 

 

In the space of a few months, the club lost two of its members. From different age groups, but equally committed to the club and ever popular members. 

 

Frank had battled cancer for some time before his passing. He was a long standing member and one of those every club relies upon to turn his hand to anything to help; whether playing, captain, committee member or filling in for a missing referee, he always had the club's best interest at heart.  

 

Bruno was only 34 when he passed away following diagnosis wirth a brain tumour. A 1st XI player for many years, Bruno combined strength and tactical awareness - he won many tackles with those telescopic legs!  

 

The awards dinner is regularly attended by Frank's widow, Jenny, and Bruno's widow, Sarah Abrahams. 

 

Tom Kavanagh was a rare being. A committed player for three decades, including many appearances for the 1st XI, Tom was also a perfectionist who sought perfection from others too.

 

A man of principle, he could often be found debating the rights and wrongs of any subject late into the evening and famously once paid his subs on the spot at an AGM when it was pointed out that he had not done so and was not therefore entitled to an opinion!

 

The award was donated by John Regan and Jim Locke, long standing friends and fellow members who had spent much time with Tom over many years and is awarded by the committee to someone or a group who have made a significant contribution outside the normal running of the Club. .
