When it comes to recognising those who go unrecognised, Steve Mott certainly fits perfectly into that category.
Although he was one of the original trustees of the Club when it reformed, Steve’s most visible contribution is in his role as Bobby Buck, the matchday mascot.
Steve dons Bobby’s costume at as many home games as his work patterns allow, but as well as matchday duties he also becomes Bobby for events in the community, representing the Bucks at open days, carnivals and fetes as well as the Club’s annual visit to the local Princess Royal Hospital children’s ward.
Although the players and management are very welcome visitors, it is Bobby who usually brings the biggest smiles and is the one that the children want to have their photograph taken with.
Steve’s cheerful disposition makes him the ideal man to take the Club’s message out into the community, something he has done for a good many years now, and his long service in the role makes him a worthy winner.
