Long-serving Stevenage FC employee Bob Makin has been awarded the honour of becoming a Life Vice President for the football club...
Following a distinguished non-league playing career which saw him go on to become Barking’s highest ever appearance maker, Bob became CEO of Stevenage Football Club in the year 2000 before briefly leaving after 12 successful years.
He returned to the club in 2015 where he worked as General Manager and Club Secretary, before retiring in December of last year.
Chairman Phil Wallace presented Bob with a Commemorate Cap prior to Saturday's game against Forest Green Rovers.
"Bob has been both a work colleague and a mate for a couple of decades now, and was part of our hugely successful years building Stevenage FC into an EFL club," he said.
"He has been a confidant to me on more than one occasion and has always gone above and beyond to help the club. The Life Vice President award is both fitting and deserved and it is great to know he will continue to watch and support us."
Speaking shortly after finding out the news, Bob says he is honoured to receive such recognition.
"Honestly I am over-the-moon and very humbled," he said. "It is a great honour for me to be made Life Vice President and I look forward to continue supporting the club going forward."
