I NOTE with sadness the death announcement of Fred Martin of Cam in last week's Gazette.

For those of us who played youth football at Cam in the 1950s/60s Fred was the stalwart youth secretary, team coach, net erector/pitch marker and above all, he filled the tin bath in the pavilion for both teams to wash in.

A lifelong supporter of Cam Bulldogs but above all a great figurehead for many of us.

Cam has lost another good 'un. Well played Fred.
