RIP Ken Triggs

Vauxhall Motors FC are saddened to hear the death of former committee member, Ken Triggs, who passed away on Tuesday evening following a long battle with illness.

Ken was a stalwart back in the 80’s, and worked across the motorway at the Vauxhalls Car Plant. Himself, Sue, Emma and the whole family worked at VMFC, and Ken was a key member of the running of the club.

Committee Member and Former Player, Steve Hilton, said, ‘When I signed for Vauxhall Motors in 1998, the first club official I met was Ken Triggs. Over the years, it was evident that Ken was a committed member of the staff at Vauxhalls. A true gent who worked hard and was loved by all the players. The Triggs family were all part of Vauxhalls and travelled far and wide on our Vase run and FA Cup journey. I’ve kept in touch with Ken through the years and it was always a joy to catch up and reminisce about the good old times. Ken battled to the end and will be sorely missed but never forgotten. Rest in peace Mr. Triggs’.

Our condolences go out to Ken’s wife, Sue, and children, Emma, Kate and George.
