FOSTERS MOURN LEGEND IN BINT
COCKFOSTERS are in mourning following the death of their long-time secretary Graham Bint, who lost his battle with cancer on Wednesday.
Graham’s life-long association with the Essex Senior Lge Fosters goes back to his playing days in the late 1950s.
When the former goalkeeper retired as a player, following spells with Millwall and Hertford Town, he took on the role of social secretary and bar manager before becoming secretary, in 1998, a position he would hold for the next 31 years.
A minute’s silence was observed before Cockfosters’ reserve team game on Wednesday night and yesterday’s FA Cup preliminary round tie against Coggeshall Town as well as the reserve fixture.
His passing was also marked by all the Essex Senior Lge clubs in action yesterday.
Adam Rynhold, who has taken over Graham’s role as secretary, said of the 78 year-old stalwart, “Cockfosters FC have lost a truly amazing football man.
“He gave his all to the club and will be greatly missed by everyone at Cockfosters FC.”
