HEFIN ROBERTS 1943 - 2017
It is with great sadness that Cheshire Schools FA announces the death on 2 June of our Chairman and Competitions Secretary, Hefin Roberts. Hefin's death at the age of 73 was unexpected and has left the world of schools' football in a state of shock. Hefin had been Chairman of our association for a total of 14 years and had served as a very able Competitions Secretary. He had also served as Secretary of Mid Cheshire SFA ( now Vale Royal) for about 25 years. Hefin was a much loved character who was totally committed to schools' football. He had an infectious sense of humour and a warm, engaging personality. His contribution to schools' football over a period of 50 years cannot be overestimated. Many tributes have been paid by colleagues in the world of football - all speak of his generosity of spirit and dedication to helping youngsters enjoy the game. Hefin enriched the lives of so many, children and adults alike. He will be greatly missed. Our thoughts are with his wife, Carol, who always supported Hefin's activities with great patience and understanding.
