Mike Hughes Memorial Shield

In memory of Michael ‘Spider’ Hughes, The New Saints FC introduced a new award to recognise outstanding service to the football club and have called it the Mike Hughes Memorial Shield.

In its inaugural year, Keith Weaver won the award and was presented with the shield by ‘Spider’s’ step-son Tony Williams at the TNS Annual Awards night.

Affectionately known to all in football circles in Wales and throughout Europe as ‘Spider’, he brought a smile to many faces with his undoubted passion for his beloved club and the game in Wales.

The New Saints President was a great ambassador for the club and enjoyed many memorable trips around Wales and further afield in Europe following the club he supported for many years.
