TSB was one of the first guys I met in Dubai when I started playing for the Arabian Potbellies, we used to train together – along with his son Elliot … ESB. Trev’s a great guy and it isn’t often I say that about a ref (though I never played in a game he reffed … ;-), just one of those laid back people that you can’t help but like and still playing at 60+ – he was something of a phenomenon to me from the off.
I got an email from the Bellies telling me that Trev had been caught in a collapsed scrum at Sharjah and that he was in a bad way. The word spread and the Potbellies moved into action – just as they always do when a member of their brethren get’s caught in a jam, – whatever it may be.
Trev has improved almost continually since the potbellies rallied round and moved him up to a hospital in Abu Dhabi, but he still has a long way to go. We all as players look at these things and quietly think to ourselves “there but for the grace of god ….” and it is that thought that has driven so many to send donations and to arrange fund raising events. I have included a flyer for just such one of these events in Abu Dhabi. There are others. I hope to use this page to add official news from Arthur, Steve and Franco regarding Trev’s progress – so please just use the ‘comments’ facility below to add any questions or post any news of events etc and also use the social media buttons to ‘spread the word’.
Trev is a great man, a great father and husband too and I have a lot of respect for him as do countless others all over UAE, Asia and beyond and I’d just like to wish him and his family all the best for a speedy recovery.
Trevor’s spirits are high and he has a very positive attitude. Trevor is happy to receive visitors. He is currently in Room 104 (1st Floor), Telemetry Ward, Al Noor Hospital, Abu Dhabi.
Anyone wishing to send cards etc. should send them to;
PO Box 72162,
Abu Dhabi, UAE
and Trevor’s office who will ensure that they are delivered to him.
Trevor has also requested that if anyone wishes to email him he can be contacted on [email protected] .
