We have received the sad news that former Westmorland FA Council Member, Tommy Huck passed away this week. He was a stalwart to football in the county and particularly at his club Appleby FC for the whole of his life.

Tommy also made a significant contribution to the work of the Westmorland Football League where he was an Executive Committee Member and Chairman for many years.
He also devoted the whole of his life to his own club Appleby FC where he served on the Committee and was Chairman for many-many years.
His outstanding service to the game was recognised by The FA in 1999 when he received their 50 Year Service Award.
Throughout his life he was a devoted family man, and wife Edna and children never far from his football world
