Prior to our match against Hove on Saturday 7 January, a minute’s silence was held in memory of our Vice President, Fixture Secretary and Referees Coordinator Andy Hillburn who passed away unexpectedly at Christmas.
Friends and former players have held various toasts and tributes in recent days, many featuring his favoured Fullers London Pride.
Andy was also heavily involved at Croydon Football Club and a similar pre-match tribute was held at the Croydon Sports Arena before their game against Larkfield & New Hythe. Andy had been Croydon FC’s Match Secretary since the early 90s, was a former Chairman and had recently became a Life President of the club.
We all miss a great Old Mid.
