Graham Hopton Bardsey FC
Tommy Dixon Service to Football Award

Graham Hopton joined Bardsey FC during the mid-1980s as a player after a long and distinguished local  football career as one of Harrogate schools top players of the era.  His open age career included stints at both Shadwell and Harewood, the latter period being curtailed after he suffered a serious knee injury that prevented him continuing at that level . Upon retiring from playing, Graham started getting involved with the running of the Club in particular helping with the ground upkeep and maintenance (including the cricket square and outfield).  In the early 1990s, Graham took on the co-management of the Bardsey FC Sunday Team and jointly oversaw the most successful period in the Sunday teamís history during which in the mid-1990s they made a clean sweep of being Claro League Champions, League Cup winners and JB Walls Trophy winners for three consecutive seasons.In 2000, Graham then took of co-management of the 1st Team in the West Yorkshire League leading them to the WYL League Cup Final before stepping aside to allow his close friend John Neary to take back the reigns (John had previously run the 1st Team in the late 80s and early 90s).  Throughout Grahamís tenures as Sunday and Saturday 1st Team Manager, he continued with his groundsman duties probably saving the club somewhere in the region of £10k per annum. Tragedy struck in 2002 when John Neary passed away prematurely, Graham took on both Johnís positions of Football Club Chairman and 1st Team Manager seeing the club through this challenging, difficult and traumatic period. Graham continued as the football club chairman and made a series of 1st team managerial appointments that saw the Bardsey establish themselves as one of the strongest teams in the West Yorkshire League being crowned Premier Division Champions five times between 2007 and today as well as winning the WRCFA Challenge Cup, Barkston Ash FA Challenge Cup and WYL League Cup during the same period. At various times as necessary, Graham has continued to assume managerial control of both the Bardsey Saturday 2nd and Sunday Teams for varying periods and is currently co-managing the Saturday 2nd Team as we enter a new exciting era of trying to encourage younger and more locally based players to play their football at Bardsey FC. Graham is a true stalwart of Bardsey FC and it is true to say there might not be a Bardsey Football Club without him.  He has worked tirelessly to make sure that Bardsey have done everything possible to be successful at whatever level they have competed.  This includes the constant raising of funds to allow the club to keep its head above water and continue in difficult financial times. Graham has made Bardsey a family football club where generations of fathers and sons have proudly represented the club sometimes in the same team (even grandsons now wear the Bardsey replica shirt ).  He has always encouraged and given  chances to players from all areas, socio economic and ethnic backgrounds as long as they embraced the club ethics of fairness, honesty and reliability. If someone is more deserving and fitting within the Barkston Ash football family to receive a Ēservices to football ď award than Graham then they must be someone unbelievably special within the organisation and so Bardsey Football Club including Graham would wish to congratulate and endorse them for everything they have done for their club.
