Trevor Glasscock

All at Royston Town FC were saddened to learn of the recent passing of Trevor Glasscock.

Club President Alan Barlow paid his respects with this statement:

Trevor, affectionately known as “Bamber”, was in the years that he was involved with RTFC totally committed to the Club, he lived and breathed it every single day, he was ‘Mr Royston Town’. In his role as Secretary he was respected throughout the world of local football administration. and as a player he was the Crows all-time record goal scorer with 289 goals between 1968 and 1982.

When he resigned in July 2000 he had served on the Committee for over 30 years and he said to me “Royston is the only Club I’ve ever wanted to play for and be involved with – I love this Club but I just thought now was the time to leave. I’ll be definitely watching them home and away and I would dearly love to see the Club back in the Ryman League”. He got his wish back in in 2012 when the Club was promoted back to Step 4.

Trevor was one of those people I worked closely with when I was General Secretary and later President and I learnt so much from him, in spite of his slightly irritating but well intentional habit of taking decisions without consulting the rest of the Committee but you just could never get upset by him as he would give you a mischievous little smile and say “I thought it was the best thing for the Club” – who could argue with that?

He will be sorely missed but always remembered.
