Association of Match Officials

At a recent meeting of the Association of Toolstation Western League Match Officials it was announced that the association would sponsor two awards for the end of the season for Top Manager & Top Captain as marked by the match referees under the Respect Programme. Each will receive a voucher to Errea Sports for £200.00.

Special guest at the meeting was World Cup match official Mike Mullarkey who brought along some of his memorabilia collected as a FIFA match official.

Alan Bush

19 October

Former Oldland Abbotonians Chairman and President Alan Bush sadly passed away in Weston Hospital yesterday.

Rather appropriately, the hugely popular Mr Bush died at 4.45pm as the final whistle blew at grounds around the country. Alan was well known around the Oldland, Longwell Green, Kingswood and Hanham areas and was one of life's gentlemen. He had suffered a long illness.

His support, enthusiasm, humour and general presence over three decades of dedicated service will be sadly missed. It is Oldland Abbotonian's intention to hold a minute's applause before Wednesday night's Les Phillips Cup tie with Ashton & Backwell.

Arthur Wimble

13 October

It is with deep regret that we report the death of Arthur Wimble, ex-secretary of Chippenham Town FC, a well known face to Western League players, club personnel and match officials.

Arthur joined the committee of the club in 1980 and took over the secretary's role from Tony Knee in 1983, remaining in the post until 1996.

Arthur handed the reins to Chris Blake but was to be found at the ground most days until well into 2010, assisting in many aspects of club administration.

Arthur's funeral will take place at 11.30am on Friday 24th October at West Wiltshire Crematorium, Devizes Road, Semington, Trowbridge BA14 6HL.

E. Wootton & Sons are handling all the arrangements and a request is made for family flowers only. If desired donations can be made in Arthur's memory to Seymour House, Chippenham, where he spent his final years, or the RNLI. These donations can be made on the website www.ewoottenandson.co.uk.
