Graham Bint, the much loved and widely respected former player and Club Secretary of Cockfosters, died yesterday at the age of 77.
Graham joined Cockfosters as a young goalkeeper in the late 1950s, and apart from a single season at Hertford Town, spent the whole of his sporting life with the Chalk Lane club, being an essential part of the Herts County League winning side of 1966/67.
After his playing days were over, Graham took on many different roles at the club, and in 1988 became Club Secretary, a role which he fulfilled with quiet dignity and ruthless efficiency until last week, when his condition finally forced him to step down. In his working life, Graham had been an assessor in the insurance industry. This, it is believed, is the source of the rare form of asbestosis which ultimately led to his death.
Graham's death leaves an enormous hole in the already tiny family that is Cockfosters - an absence that will be felt every single day.
