The Richard Lillicrap Award was established after his premature death in 2007 – Richard was an instrumental in forming the Swans Trust who played a vital role in saving the Swansea City in the 2000s.
This year’s award went to Nick Hawker, chair of the Exeter City Supporters’ Trust and a director at fan-owned Exeter City FC.
Nick was nominated by his colleagues at Exeter City Supporters’ Trust for his work throughout 2018-19, not only at Exeter, but offering support to fans of other clubs too. Nick’s spent many hours on the road meeting other supporter trusts and fan groups – notably speaking at Torquay United, Northampton Town and Yeovil Town, often out of his own pocket.
Exeter City trustee and FSA national council member Neil Le Milliere said: “Nick is an excellent ambassador for our club and the supporter movement, we are both lucky to have him.”
The award was collected on behalf on Nick by Jim Shepherd and was presented at the FSA AGM on Saturday 29th June 2019 at the Royal National Hotel, London.
