Oldham Advertiser - - NEWS -

A DED­I­CATED club sec­re­tary has been praised as an un­sung hero.

John Mel­lor, of the Hig­gin­shaw Am­a­teur Rugby League club, was recog­nised at the re­cent 2014 Greater Manch­ester Sports Awards.

The 58-year-old was pre­sented with his prize by Olympic ath­lete Iwan Thomas MBE at the glit­ter­ing event at The Point, Old Traf­ford.

John said: “It’s in my blood.

“I’ve been with Higgy 29 years and whether I’m ap­ply­ing for fund­ing or do­ing in­voices, I never get tired of it.

“It’s been a fan­tas­tic year, but th­ese awards aren’t for me they are for Hig­gin­shaw.”
