Brian Lee who managed Wycombe Wanderers in the 1970s when they were in the Isthmian League has been awarded an MBE for services to football in the New Years Honours.
Brian went on to become chairman of the football club and also designed and project managed the building of the new stadium at Adams Park.
He is now Chairman of the Football Conference Trust and President of the Football Conference.
Trevor Stroud, Trust chairman on hearing the news, sent Brian this message of congratulations:
Hi Brian. Just a brief note to congratulate you on behalf of Wycombe Wanderers Trust on your award announced today.
Your contribution to football has been immense and makes the award totally justified.
I hope we can welcome you to Adams Park again very soon.
Brian was quick to reply:
Hi Trevor How very kind of you to write, it only reflects what countless other people have done for ‘our’ game and most of my life was spent around WW!
I was at the Oxford game and looking forward to going to Villa Park, sorry to Adams Park, next week!!
Kindest regards and all success to your endeavours in 2016.
