21:50 - The Unvailing of the National Tournament Trophy,  Daryl Ann (Hon. Secretary, Little League Football)

The Hon, Secretary of Little League Football spoke about what the Organisation wanted too do in remembrance of Frank Adey. He spoke about how important it was in order to keep Frank's legacy continued and share what he had done with other people along with the children that play in the leagues. The idea was to retire the current National Tournament Trophy that had been in cirulation since 1977 when the first National Tournament took place and bring out a new one that would mark 50 years of Little League Football. In line with this, it was decided that we would introduce the new trophy tonight too mark the 50 years of Little League Football but to also have Frank's name engraved on the cup to ensure that he will always be known as the founder of Little League Football!
