Avril started off washing football strips and cleaning out the pavilion. She progressed to Club Secretary and is now the Club Treasurer. She is Bookings Secretary for the Astro Training Area which is used not only for our Club but members of the Community can hire this area for training and children’s parties.
Dent has been involved with the club for an astonishing SEVEN decades!! Firstly as a Player, then as Groundsman, Manager, Treasurer, Secretary, Chairman, President and Trustee. Dent was also part of the triumvirate that had the foresight to purchase Low Hall Park in the 1970’s giving us both security and a wonderful place in which to play football. Dent has dedicated his life to the club, and it is little wonder that he is known as ‘Mr Haydon Bridge United’.
