Mark Madsen-Mygdal Memorial Trophy





The 'Mark Madsen-Mygdal Memorial Trophy' is an annual match contested between the first team and combi at the end of each season, in memory of former player Mark Madsen-Mygdal. 'Mingle' tragically died on Thursday 11th July 2013, whilst racing in the Southern 100. Racing was his main sport, but he meant so much to so many people at the club.

Mark joined the club in the summer of 2011 from Foxdale, and went on to make 46 appearances for the club, scoring 2 goals, both in a 7-2 win away to Malew combi on 5/11/11. His first appearance for the club was against visiting Welsh side CPD Y Glannau, in an 8-8 friendly draw. His competitive debut came again away to Malew, in an opening day 3-1 win over Malew 1st team. Mark was a member of the first D&D squad to reach the Hospital Cup quarter finals, playing in the victories over Douglas Athletic, Castletown (our first against a top flight side) and the quarter final defeat to Union Mills. His last start for the club and the combi was a Junior Cup game away to Ayre, which ended 1-1 and our first ever combi penalty shootout, although we were defeated. Appropriately, Mingle was made captain for this match.

'MMM 1990-2013' is embroidered under the club badge on the first and combination team kits purchased 2013, thanks to former treasurer Mark Peberdy for part funding. This was covered by the BBC in a video and online.

Mark also occasionally helped out with the Juniors team, which started in 2012, and was due to go on a coaching course and join the Junior coaching setup for the 2013/14 season. He regularly attended Vets and Cowell Cup matches, such was his passion for the club. Mark was also set to be the combi manager for the forthcoming season.

This match format began at the end of the 2007/2008 season. The cup was originally named after Enzo Ciappelli's former wine bar, 'Aperitivo', then becoming the 'Chairman's Cup' before changing to the 'Mark Madsen-Mygdal Memorial Trophy' in time for the 2013 match.
