On 19th June 2016, at our end of season awards presentation, the Club suffered a tremendous tragedy. Giving his time to one of the many things he loved and was passionate about, Donny sadly passed away.
The Club will honour Donny’s memory every year, and celebrate everything that he contributed to both our Club, and the wider community.
As part of this celebration, we invite a group of U12 teams to take part in the Donny Sinclair Memorial Trophy, where our own DaSH U12s will compete to retain/regain the trophy each year.
In addition, we also invite a number of adult teams, made up foremostly of Donny’s friends, family and Club members, to compete for the Donny Sinclair Memorial Trophy.
In 2016 at our inaugural event, the junior trophy was won by DaSH U12, in a thrilling penalty shoot out final v Peacehaven U12. The adult trophy was won by Red Star Rife, a team of Donny’s long standing friends and former team mates.
The 2017 junior trophy was retained by DaSH in a confident 4-0 victory over Peacehaven, and the adult trophy was retained by Donny’s former team Red Star Rife.
The 2018 junior trophy was retained by DaSH after a thrilling 7-5 victory over Premier, which was followed by another 12 goal bonanza. A 6-6 draw between DaSH XI and Red Star Rife XI, leading to a penalty shootout, with Red Star running out winners again for the third contest in succession.
