Maurice and the Jones Family have been a large part of Spotswood Old Boys and Spotswood United. We as a club are very proud of our History, and due to this we have re-introducing the 'Maurice Jones Memorial Shield' in 2015 that was last played for in 1987.
Maurice Jones, while playing for Spotswood Old Boys against Clifton on No. 1 at Yarrow Stadium, tragically died during the match in 1986. Each year we will honour Maurice and his contribution that he made to Spotswood and Taranaki Rugby by playing for the Maurice Jones Memorial Shield. The Shield will be up for grabs at Spotswood United Premier's first Home game against Clifton each year. The trophy will always remain in the Spotswood United clubrooms.
Below is images from a scrap book the Jones family collected over the year. Huge thanks to Jos, Kerry, Alan, Bobby, Kevin and the extended Jones Whanau.
