Hall of Fame for Gareth Jones

Rushen great honoured

Rushen United legend Gareth Jones has been inducted into the Isle of Man Football Association Hall of Fame.

The presentation of a framed picture was made at the Club's recent awards night.

The wording on the frame reads:

"An outstanding footballer, Gareth Jones was the leader and creative midfield dynamo for Rushen United during the 70's and 80's which saw the Spaniards become the dominant force in Manx Football.

Gareth was crowned Footballer of the Year on three occasions and went on to win every major honour in Manx Football.

He also made 38 appearances for the Island representative team.

At the end of his distinguished playing career, he turned to refereeing and became Referee of the Year 5 times."
