Which Award?[edit]

What specific award was the BEP awarded in 2007? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 3Juno3 (talkcontribs) 21:12, 24 August 2008 (UTC)

Billy Pinnell, Sports Editor, Bristol Evening Post & Green Un[edit]

Billy Pinnell "The traveller" was the Sports Editor of the Bristol Evening Post from the first day of publication in April, 1932, until his retirement 34 years later on December 31st 1956.

Billy was one of a rare breed of sportsman, whose service to football, both amateur and professional, was unrivalled.

He was a walking encyclopaedia on the game who, during his career, covered over 1,500 Bristol City and Rovers matches. And, as over 600 of them were away from home, he lived up to his pen name of "The Traveller."

He started with the Bristol Times and Mirror in 1919 later moving to the old Times and Echo, before the inception of the Evening Post.

Billy Pinnell's record of service to local soccer began in 1909 when he first became a member of the Gloucestershire Football Association Council.

In 1959 he was awarded his most prized possession, the Football Association medal for his 50 years work for the GFA, of which he was a life vice-president.

As a sportsman himself, Billy played football and bowls, while in his younger days, was a keen cyclist. He later served on many sporting committees.

He was always remembered as a constructive critic and was never destructive in his writings.
