The Joanne and Mark Hogan Award was established by the Peterborough City Soccer Association to commemorate the memory Mark Hogan, a former City player who died tragically as a result of a car accident in November 1999 along with his mother Joanne. Mark was an accomplished soccer player and team captain at 12 years of age and Joanne was a very active volunteer in the soccer community.
In the year 2000, the south field at Eastgate Park was renamed the Hogan Pitch in memory of Joanne and Mark. As a further sign of respect, Mark’s number-13 jersey was permanently retired from the Peterborough City U12 (1987) Boys First team and is displayed in the clubhouse.
The Joanne and Mark Hogan Award is presented annually to one male and one female Peterborough City youth player “best representing skill in soccer, commitment to the game, team and club and team leadership”. The presentations will be made at a suitable club function.
