Trevor Herrington was one of the founding
members of Behind The Flag, who sadly passed away in January 2010 following a short illness. Most of you will know Trev
from his writings on this website, in his regular column “Trev’s Travels”, which has been a feature of the
Sheffield FC matchday programme for well over a decade.
Although Trev’s allegiance was to the blue half of the city, no-one could ever doubt his love of Sheffield
FC, and could often be seen at games at all levels within the club – home and away. It was his Awayday experiences that
were his main love, and from them spawned the light-hearted column “Trev’s Travels”, where he described
everything – and anything – that went on.
Without doubt Trevor was a dry wit, and probably the most polite bloke we’ve ever had the privilege to
meet; he was a gentleman to say the least. The last time we saw him was just after New Year in hospital, he’d just been
in there for a week or so, and was in great spirits and in a very positive mood. He was busy cracking jokes and reminiscing
about journeys past, and had made the call that on his release from hospital the Awaydays would sadly have to end, bemoaning
an end of an era - the Leek Town Travels was to be his last.
His passing came as a great shock to everyone who knew him, and the Club honoured Trev in the home game against
Goole AFC with a minute's applause and a presentation to his partner Jeannie. So, for your consideration, here are all Trev's
Travels in one place...
