Garth Cooper Joined Hayes!


On the 29th May 1952 Garth passed his trial to join the club.

67 years ago Hayes asked potential new members to attend nets and have a kind of trial before being accepted for membership.

Garth successfully did so and remembers that following his trial he had to join a group of other boys pulling the heavy roller up and down the square under Jimmy Dance’s control!

Fred Dabbs joined at the same time and records show that John Lock was already at the club.

Not only a player for the club, but Garth also had a successful spell as President and is pictured here with The Mayor of Bromley during the opening of our non-turf strip.

He continues to be a strong supporter of the club.
