Wests halfback was a try-scorer in the club's 22-12 grand final win over Souths in 1952. After playing with C’bury and P’matta, Trevena went to Young before taking on a captain-coach position with Penrith, then a P’matta district side. He was coach of the infant club its first season in the premiership (1967) but following the sacking of Bob Boland in 1973 he returned to coach the troubled club which finished with the wooden spoon.
