An interview with a 1964 FA Cup medal winner

BovMoore Than Just A Podcast presenter Nigel Kahn interviews 1964 FA Cup medal winner Eddie Bovington who made 184 appearances for West Ham. The 76-year-old joined the West Ham youth team in the late fifties as a groundsman and played in the Hammers Academy alongside Bobby Moore and Geoff Hurst.

  1. Nice interview – I remember seeing him in the ‘B’ Team – Burnett, Burkett, Brabrook, Boyce and the others. A hardwoking tough nut.

    It was interesting about Ron Greenwood, he’s almost revered for his ‘pure’ football approach but to hear that he was no good at the Man Management stuff and was at loggerheads with the players a lot of the time. I know his treatment of Bobby Moore was very harsh.

    He’s right about John Cushley and Bobby Ferguson, definitely signing them were both rickets!
