KLOSTERS Football Club paid tribute to Andrew ‘Mo’ Stevenson by holding a minute’s silence prior to their game against Castle Tavern on Sunday morning.

The Sunday League side are about to finish their second season playing under the guise of Klosters, the bar that Mo was a partner in and managed before he passed away after a short battle with cancer.

Mo’s dad John and close friends and business partners Graeme Young and Oliver Hillier attended the game to join the club in their minute’s silence.

Klosters manager Rhys Howell said: “Myself and the players will all miss Mo greatly. He was a huge help to the club and was also a friend.

“This is our second season as Klosters and Mo was superb with us and always had time to help us.

“I was delighted to see his dad John, Graeme and Oliver there. At least they now know that everyone at the club is thinking about Mo and his family at this difficult time.

“I’d also like to thank Phil Perry and Scalby FC for the use of their pitch, Oliver O’Brien for refereeing the game and to Castle Tavern, who have donated some money as well as our lads, who also donated money.”

SRUFC chief executive Young added: “Mo was extremely fond of the Klosters FC lads and took a lot of interest in their games.

“So this was a fitting tribute and I thank them for their efforts.”
