THE GAME FOR A LAUGH BACKTRACK AWARD
(nominated by Mike Amos)
Peter Lax. Served local sport in Billingham for 50 years and has been a valued member of the Northern League management committee since 1988. He played both cricket and football with Billingham Synthonia and had football trials with England schools. As an administrator, he's held every possible position with the Synners but his greatest gift is his warm personality and ability to make others laugh.
