Life Member: Tony Hilton

  3 June 2012   Jeff Bell   Honours
 

Tony Hilton joined the club in 1952 and played as goalkeeper for the junior 6th (under 12) team. Tony’s uncle Otto was at that time on the club’s management committee, and his father, Arthur, also joined that committee in 1954. Tony played junior football for 4 years and later also filled in for lower grade men’s teams while he was at college.

 

But, like his father and uncle, it was as an administrator that Tony was to make his mark with the club. His career as a budding football journalist, and later as a racing journalist, put paid to any prospects of continuing to play.
