Tribute from John Cheadle (past chairman and League secretary)
I was shocked and saddened to hear on Thursday about the death, of The Dudley League President Mr. Trevor Worton. Trevor served as President of the League following the death of Miss Vera Royal in 2009.
He was the founder of the Hawbush Table Tennis Club where I met him in 1957, when I joined Hawbush. I had previously known him when we were both fifteen years old, at the Inner Circle Youth Club (later Brierley Hill YC) where we both played Table Tennis in the Youth League. Trevor won many awards as a player and represented the Town and County on occasions. Dudley Table Tennis will always be indebted to him for the work he did during the 1950’s and 60’s as divisional secretary, looking after up to eight divisions.
Rest in peace old friend.
