He will succeed Pippa Jones, who hands over the reins at the annual meeting in Birmingham on 10 May after completing seven years’ outstanding service.
Trevor, originally a national standard breaststroke swimmer, was introduced to water polo by Alf Jordan at the Chelmsford club. At Kings School, Grantham, he came under the expert guidance of coach Jim Caulfield; then, after playing throughout his time studying at Birmingham University and Leeds Polytechnic, Trevor moved into coaching while teaching at the Royal Grammar School, Newcastle.
From 1986, he taught at Bolton School, his coaching partnership with Mike Glover – through the school and, later, City of Manchester – producing so many fine players.
Trevor succeeded Trevor Hyde as English Schools’ water polo co-ordinator and subsequently became ESSA President.
Now retired from teaching, Trevor has been a play zone official at the London Olympics, European and Commonwealth Championships, as well as becoming a BWPL delegate. He spends much of his time in Malta where he is a member of the Exiles club, helping facilitate a number of successful schools and club tours.
