HAMM, Geoffrey G. "Geoff"

born fourth quarter of 1930
died Monday 14th October 2019, aged 89

Geoff was born close to Kingfield Stadium and school friends with former Club President Phil Ledger He worked at the Lion Works and moved to the new family home on Egley Road. It was there that he died surrounded by his family.

Over the years Geoff had maintained his connections with Woking and been a very frequent spectator at games until incapacitated through ill health.

Geoff Hamm played his first Woking game v Walthamstow Avenue in 1950 and went on to make 261 League and Cup appearances for the Cards as an inside forward, scoring 113 times to make him the club’s 8th highest goal scorer.

He won 22 England Amateur caps and was part of Woking’s famous Amateur Cup winning team in 1958.

Following the Wembley triumph he moved to Wimbledon where he played for a number more years and gained another Amateur Cup winners medal with them in 1963.

Geoff was vice-captain when the Dons won the Amateur Cup in 1963. He joined from Woking in 1958 and quickly cemented his place at inside right in a side that dominated the Isthmian League for the next six years.

He would have happily played out the rest of his career at Wimbledon, but when the club went semi-professional in 1964 he was deemed too old at 33 to be offered a contract.

He did remain at Wimbledon for some time after they turned semi-professional, managing the reserve team, and playing sporadically for the reserves for another couple of seasons as an amateur.
