The Cove Junior Football Team : 1959-60 Season
John Winterbournes Champions Certificate.
Champions - well, OK, Joint Champions. We shared with Tower Hill (I think) and
at the time we all felt robbed by a homer referee when we played South
Farnborough away at Queens Road. Refs were usually the home teacher in charge
of the team, and he definitely cost us the points that day.

Jeremy, Richard, myself, Glen and Nigel all went on to
F.G.S. (Glen via Cove Secondary) and we all represented the school at 1st XI
level at one age or another. Jeremy was also School Chess captain for I think
several years, and I doubt the school ever had a better player. Ive been lucky
enough over the years to play with some excellent footballers, that stood out as
much better than their team mates, and Glen was one of those. Fabulous player.
