For "services to the community and local government in North East Lincolnshire" apparently.

I didn't think holding back the district's biggest community sporting asset really qualified personally.

In his three stints as Grimsby Town manager spanning over 10 years the club was never relegated and he also guided them to three promotions.
Only 14 managers have reached 1,000 matches in charge of a Football League team by 1998 and Buckley is one of them.

I thought he was the man who was at the centre of losing £3M of  taxpayers money in the Icelandic banks fiasco so how does he get an award like this and who nominated him? People wonder why Grimsby has problems when the public elect the 4 below at various levels

Micklebrough being voted in as a Councillor is enough to make me give up on democracy. In fact, I am now a Communist.
