Popplewell Trophy 2011

Alan Coveney from Winchester and District A.C. was named as the first winner of the Popplewell Trophy at the AGM. The Trophy was to be presented to any official, runner, club member or parent helper who was considered to have contributed to the League in some way. It was named in honour of Maureen and John Popplewell, who had worked tirelessly for 25 years to build the League into its present form. Nominations were open from all affiliated clubs, and the winner decided by the Executive Committee.

Alan was chosen because of his commitment behind the scenes to ensure that Winchester's fixture at Farley Mount is a success. This he has done over countless seasons.

In accepting the Trophy from the Chairman, Ken Littlejohns, Alan commented that it was a team effort, but that he was proud to accept it on behalf of the WADAC team.
