It is with deep shock and deep sadness that we have to report the death of Trevor Williams, who passed away last Saturday evening.
For many years Trevor was East League Secretary, a job he took enormous pride in.
He was at the forefront of creating the current structure of the Men’s League and playing an enormous part in the combining of the Men’s and Women’s committee’s into a single body. Trevor also acted as East Region Hockey Association Secretary and was most recently Treasurer until this season. To the day of his passing Trevor remained the webmaster of East website.
Trevor was also a very loyal member of Hertford Hockey Club and it is thought there are not many players who have played against Hertford in the last 20 years who haven’t been umpired by him.
A man of great intellect with a passion for our game, a man who worked tirelessly in trying to take our game forwards in a no nonsense, purposeful way that was fair to all.
To many Trevor was Mr East for a very long time, he gave sage like advice when asked and always encouraged everyone he worked with in administering our game to do the right thing.
Trevor will be missed for long time to come in the our game.
Details of Trevor’s funeral will be posted as soon as known and we hope many will raise a glass in his memory.
