The Board and Council would like to recognise the service Maurice Armstrong has given to the Huntingdonshire FA.
Maurice joined Hunts FA in 1974 and held the role of County Secretary until his retirement in 2004. He started the role on an honorary basis, carried out from his home in the days before we the County FA purchased the previous offices at Cromwell Chambers in Huntingdon, and became employed by the Association when the FA started to fund County FA Staff.
Maurice has held almost every available office within the Association, being Secretary to all of the standing Committees and going on to Chair most of them. In 2010 Maurice became the Chairman of the Huntingdonshire FA.
Maurice stood down as Chairman in 2019 to become Hunts FA President, and remains President to this date.
Maurice has been a member of The FA Council since 1985, in 2005 he was elected as a Vice President of The FA and in 2013 he was elevated to Life Vice President of The Football Association, a role he holds to this date.
During his time at The FA he has represented the Huntingdonshire FA with distinction, which included his time as Chair of the Referees Committee, Chair of the Disciplinary Committee and for many years a Member of the National Game Board, only retiring from the NGB having attained the maximum age limit.
The Board and Council would like on behalf of everyone who has participated in the County FA, be it playing, refereeing, coaching, as a Club or League administrator and as a member of staff, to recognise this outstanding service to the Huntingdonshire FA, Hunts FA can advise that the Huntingdonshire FA Headquarters is to be renamed “Armstrong House”.
Hunts FA sincerely thank Maurice for his years of service to the Association.
