Ronnie Swan Trophy up for grabs in Liverpool friendly

Posted on Sunday, July 14th, 2019

Spartans and Liverpool u23s will battle it out on Monday evening for silverware in the shape of the Ronnie Swan Trophy (7pm ko).

Everyone who played for or was involved with the Spartans has many fond memories of Ronnie. In particular, he excelled as the master of ceremonies at the club’s annual dinner.

He joined Spartans, who had been formed by two of his Edinburgh University team-mates in 1951. These were the first steps to him becoming “Mr Spartans”.

Ronnie was in his element: from the minute he rapped his gavel on the top table we knew who was in control. He was a superb speaker, raconteur and his dry, wicked and often risqué sense of humour guaranteed an evening of fantastic entertainment.

Ronnie Swan epitomised everything that is good about the Spartans. He was a true Spartan, he was a loyal Spartan, he was a great Spartan – he was Mr Spartans!

Tickets are available at the gate: Adults £15, Concessions £10 and Under 12s £5.
