Cornwall FA Statement: Brian Conyon MBE
Cornwall FA regrets to announce the sad passing of its Past President, Brian Conyon MBE, on Saturday 10th October in Saltash.
Brian's background was in refereeing where he achieved the status of refereeing in the Football Combination, but he gave outstanding service to Cornwall FA Council for over 50 years representing the Far East Cornwall Division. He was awarded the MBE for his services to sport in Cornwall which he always stated was as much a recognition for Cornwall FA as for himself. He was involved in many committees but his main passion was the Youth Committee on which he served for most of his years on Council.
He became President in 2000, a position he held until stepping down in 2018, and was a frequent visitor to grounds all over the County as he wanted to be seen as a "working President". Brian's contribution, dedication and service to football in Cornwall over some many years has been outstanding.
At this time our thoughts are with his family, Ann and Christopher.
