RICHMOND SPORTS AWARDS: Don Taylor wins Don Fennell Award of Distincton

Don Taylor is a core Richmondite.

Born and raised here, the recently retired principal has always had a passion for sports and grew up playing hockey, baseball and soccer.

An original member of the Richmond Sockeyes junior hockey club in 1972, he retains an association with the team as a school liaison.

But Taylor, who also enjoys many outdoor activities including golfing and hiking, is also well known for his many  contributions to community sport as a coach and administrator. The Don Taylor Cup, awarded each year to the League Cup champion in the Richmond Adult Soccer League, reflects his dedication. Taylor was instrumental in building the league, formerly known as the Richmond Senior Soccer League, into one of the most popular and successful in the province, and was its president for more than two decades  from the 1980s through the 2000s.
