CORNISH FOOTBALL LEGENDS


The list will be never ending as it is very much based on opinions and memories. If you wish to have a name added, please email davedeacon@cornishsoccer.info, text or phone me on 07759 502408.


Clubs have now been added to the names, but I have purposely not included any professional clubs or either clubs where the player might have only made a handful of “guest” appearances.


I have had much appreciated help with the clubs added, however please check and let me know asap if there are omissions and corrections required. You will see in some places there are question marks!


Many thanks, Dave Deacon


   

Sad news today has brought me to add another name to the list.


I was told this morning of the death last night of Andy Trathen, a true goalscoring legend for many a club in the west of the county. I think I’m right in suggesting that he first started on the goalscoring trail for Pendeen Rovers back in the mid 1980s.


He became a prolific and respected marksman wherever he went after that and also stayed in the game as a coach/manager after he eventually hung his playing boots up.


Another personality to be lost to Cornish football and at far too young an age!


On behalf of the whole of the footballing world go our condolences to his immediate family and friends. Already the two local footballing social media sites that I’m connected with (listed below) are awash with memories and kind words and please take a moment to read them and hopefully add your own memories of a terror to defences and referees on the pitch and someone, who off it, always had time to talk about the game he loved.
