Service to Sport Award

Trevor ‘Jock’ Nugent

Trevor has been devoted to his football club for nearly 60 years. In his playing days, he was an all-action centre forward, and when his playing days were over he coached and managed the first team.

His roles within the club have continued every year since, and he now washes the shirts, takes care of training equipment, sees that the goalposts are out, ensures maintenance tasks are undertaken, and he rarely misses a game.

He still travels with the team to away fixtures and can give the lowdown on just about every player who has pulled on the club shirt since 1960.

After Storm Desmond the club’s pitch, which is next to the river, was out of action for over eighteen months, and home games had to be played 14 miles away. He helped keep morale amongst the club high, and they had a great 2016-17 season. He also worked with the Council officers to ensure that, despite many problems, the refurbishment works were completed and the club came home in September 2017.
