Saturday and Sunday League clubs will hold a minute's silence before games this weekend to honour Albert Eadon

Eadon, who died aged 88 last month, refereed for over 30 years in the Scarborough leagues up until the age of 84.

Both leagues confirmed that players will fall silent for a minute before their games at the weekend to honour Eadon.

A Saturday League spokesman also confirmed the league are looking into naming an annual award to local refs in his memory.

He said: "The league are looking at the prospect of having an annual referees award in his name as a mark of the respect we had for him."
