Crediton United to honour Chris Gillard for 50 years’ service

By Crediton Courier Newspaper in Football

CREDITON United Football Club is hosting a “Chris Gillard Day” at Lords Meadow on Saturday, September 2.

Chris recently reached the amazing milestone of 50 years’ continued service as a committee member of Crediton United FC and the club is celebrating this on the day of a home game against Bovey Tracey.

The clubhouse will be open from 12.30pm with the match kicking off at 3pm.

In April Chris was presented with an award for his service to the youth side of the club and was one of the first people attributed to forming a youth football team in the town.

Players from the Under 11’s Galaxy, 14’s and 15’s also formed a guard of honour and clapped Chris onto the field before the games that day.

Entry to the match on September 2 will be free but donations will be accepted. The barbecue will run throughout the day (weather permitting) and all are welcome along to make it a memorable day for the club and for Chris.

In order that the club has an idea of how many to cater for, anyone wishing to go along is asked to please telephone or text Steve Grinney on 07887 888 792 or email: to confirm they are able to attend.
