New board member on the team
The Brakes Trust is delighted to welcome Keith Hancock as a co-opted member of the Trust board.
As a longstanding fan, Keith will be a familiar face to many. Born and raised in Leamington, he’s been a Brakes fan since 1957 when his uncle Sid (who was a committee member) took him to the old Windmill Ground.
In the 60s he began work as a gas engineer with British Gas, and at the same time became a bass guitarist – thus having a daytime career in the gas industry and a night time career in the music industry. He has played various genres over the years and toured Canada, Germany, Ireland and most of Britain. He’s now “technically retired” but still rocking twice a week!
Keith was previously the chairman of the Friends of Leamington FC, the Supporters Club, match day PA announcer and a member of the scrubbers club. Of course he’s also one of the folk who helped to build the New Windmill Ground, as well as Berties, and founder of the junior section.
“I decided to stand for the Trust board as I passionately believe in this club and realise that you cannot change something from the outside. So I’d like to thank everyone for voting me on, and I look forward to reestablishing the Brakes as a unified club, first team, youth, juniors and lions and supporters. Together we can climb.”
The full Trust board is now:
Nick Rogers, Chairman
Peter Davis, Vice Chairman
