Richard Lillicrap Award 2017

Head of SD Scotland Andrew Jenkin presented the 2017 Richard Lillicrap Award to Alan Russell from the Raith Rovers Supporters Trust for his work producing the SD Scotland Index.

The Richard Lillicrap Award is given to the person who best embodies Richard’s unquenchable dedication to helping their fellow supporters towards greater involvement at their clubs. Before Richard passed away in 2007 he was a Treasurer of SD and instrumental in the early work of the Swans Trust. He was always happy to help out others, so in his memory this award is presented annually at the SD AGM.

Alan received the award for his SD Scotland index, which is a tool that helps supporters better understand who owns their club. The levels of transparency and good governance sadly aren’t at the levels they ought to be within Scottish football and this index helps fans better understand the often complex ownership structures of the clubs they give so much time, energy and money too.
