It’s a Gong for Graham! Spartans Chief awarded MBE in Queen’s Honours List

Posted on Saturday, December 30th, 2017

The Spartans Football Club are delighted to announce that Chairman Craig Graham has been awarded the Member of the British Empire medal in this year’s Queen’s Honours List.

Unveiled late on Friday evening, “Craig Andrew Graham. Chairman, The Spartans Community Football Academy. For services to Football and the community in Edinburgh. (Edinburgh)” was listed within the MBE section of the roll of honour.

The Club and Academy’s social media accounts were flooded with fantastic comments as people from across all sectors joined us in celebrating this wonderful news.

An ebullient Graham said, “It’s very humbling to receive this honour. At Spartans we have many inspirational people & it’s how everyone works together which enables us to make such a difference. Everyone should be very proud to have played their part since we opened the Academy in 2008.”

Well done, Craig.
