Angus McConnell, 13th February 1931- 15th February 2021
Everyone at the Scottish Youth FA was deeply saddened by the news of Angus McConnell’s passing.
Angus was one of the founding members of the SYFA, and played a key role in its inception. He was the first Vice President of the Association, and after two years in this position, went on to become the Association’s second President.
A truly outstanding ambassador for Scottish football, Angus’ contribution across many organisations, including the Central Lanarkshire Youth Football Association and East Kilbride YM FC, was felt and appreciated by all.
Angus not only dedicated so much of his time and knowledge to grassroots football, he did so with grace, respect and humility. A gentleman through and through, he will be deeply missed, and our deepest sympathies are with his family at this difficult time.
