OBE honours for Brendon Batson
The Former Players Association would like to offer our congratulations to our President Brendon Batson on being awarded an OBE in the New Year's Honours List. The award made in recognition of his services to football but probably also in recognition of his role over the years in smoothing the path of Black Players in the current game.
Respected as a Player and equally respected as an Administrator since his retirement. Having already received an MBE this additional award is fully deserved for a person who is extremely popular amongst his peers.
His 2 children, Zoe & Jason plus his 5 grandchildren must be extremely proud as are his colleagues in the Association. Congratulations Brendon. Thanks & Happy New Year to you all. Geoff
