Vale Harry Trott

The Hampton Rovers community today was saddened by the news of the passing of Harry Trott, Hampton Rovers Life Member, aged 87. Harry is survived by Gwen (89) and children Darryl, Robyn and Lindsay and their extended families.

Being a life member, Harry has had considerable involvement with the Rovers since beginning playing immediately before enlisting to serve his country in Europe in 1941. On his return from service, Harry continued his playing involvement with the club playing through to around 1950. In those days, the Rovers were based at Castlefield Oval, and young Darryl was the team mascot proudly wearing his hand-knitted (by Harry’s Mother, Darryls Grandmotther) Hampton Rovers jumper with the number 4 ½ on the back. On completion of his playing career, Harry continued active involvement with the Rovers for a number of years through a number of active positions within the club.

Harry continued his keen following of the Rovers senior teams until the end of the 2008 season, at which point his health deteriorated and was no longer able to drive. Until then Harry drove his car to the Boss James Reserve, parked at the Thorburn St End of the Ground, and actively supported the Rovers at each and every home game.

The Hampton Rovers community passes on its condolences to the Trott family, and trusts that Harry will continue to follow the Green and Gold from his new ‘home’.
