FIFA President honours Kevin Hill
Kevin Hill - midfield player - has completed over 10 years with Torquay United. He has been granted a Testimonial Match (home to Plymouth Argyle on Saturday 14 July 2007).
Just before this match, Kevin Hill has been honoured with a letter from Sepp Blatter - the President of FIFA (the world governing body for football). It is believed that this is the first time that a player has been recognised in this way.
In his letter, Blatter says: "I am sure that you will appreciate that I am not able to be present personally at this match, but I would like to send you my congratulations for everything that you have achieved for football and for your club. Football is not only a wonderful sport, but one that encompasses all levels and ages and brings us all together as a 'family'. Loyalty and dedication are some of the most important values of football and you have shown these with distinction throughout your career with Torquay United. Long may it continue and I wish you personally every success for the future"
Kevin Hill joined Torquay United in 1997 and they have been his only league club. A truly dedicated player who has seemingly played in every possible position (except goalkeeper) for the Gulls and has scored some vital, and memorable, goals. Kevin Hill richly deserves this recognition.
