Barry receives award for dedication to the Rebels


Barry Hiron wears many different hats for Slough Town on match days, and it's this dedication to the cause that's seem him named the Vanarama National League South volunteer of the month for January.

The match-day operation would certainly run less smoothly for the Rebels if Barry didn't volunteer to help out.

One of the first to arrive at Arbour Park, and often the last to leave, he starts by setting up the club bars before keeping things moving in the car park, checking in players, officials, and supporters in a timely manner.

When the game gets going, he keeps one eye on the action while retrieving balls from over fences before getting back on duty after the final whistle.

During the week he also often lends a hand by taking on odd jobs such as cleaning the beer lines.

A National League statement added: “Barry is a very worthwhile winner and a big part of the reason why we love this award. He is Mr Slough Town and now he's earned something to put on his mantelpiec­e.”

Manager of the month for January went to Dorking's Marc White, whose side won all six of their matches last month to move clear at the top, while former Maidenhead United defender,

Joe Ellul, won the player's award for his performanc­es for Maidstone United.

He's been a key part of the best defence in the league, with the Stones conceding just twice in five matches during January.
