TWO of Henley Town Football Club’s longest serving members, Michael Trendall and Andy Bryan, never stood
TWO of Henley Town Football Club’s longest serving members, Michael Trendall and Andy Bryan, never stood for re-election at last week’s annual general meeting.
Trendall was one of the band of supporters who rescued the club when in 1971 when it was struck by a series of disasters, culminating in the loss of the Reading Road ground it had occupied for 70 years.
The club played three games on borrowed pitches before Trendall became club secretary in 1973 when Henley started to field a regular team in the Wycombe League. Trendall continued in the role until 1993 when he took over as treasurer, a position he held until he stood down at this year’s meeting.
Meanwhile Bryan joined Henley as first team manager in 1985 and after few successful seasons in the Chiltonian League as manager was elected as club chairman and was at the helm when the clubhouse was built in 1995 then saw the installation of floodlights and grandstand at the Triangle ground.
