Remembering Tim

With our beloved Tim laid to rest, the Club has mourned and lost a special person. We will always remember him, and continue to work to be the best we can.

Tim was our beloved friend, club committee member, PRO & highly respected former chairman. No words can describe the great sense of loss around the club at this present time. He did so much for club members behind the scenes that people wouldn’t have been aware of. Tim held every position in the club from committee member to treasurer and club chairman.

The club purchased our grounds at Moatville in 1990 and when Tim was elected Chairman of Charleville Afc in 1991 he oversaw a major undertaking for the club to raise money to develop the grounds into 2 fabulous playing pitches and build a clubhouse. During his 23 years as chairman Tim has been a major influence and guiding force in the growth of our club.

More recently through Tim’s dedication to the club he helped deliver the absolutely fabulous new all-weather facilities that we have today in Moatville. So many young people are going to benefit from these facilities for decades to come, we will be forever grateful to Tim for all his work and vision for the club. He showed remarkable bravery and strength during his illness and will be a great loss to football, not just in our local area but on a national level also. A gentlemen and a truly wonderful man who without doubt is a legend of the game, he will be sadly missed.

As the photo shows Timmy Cove was the gold at the end of the rainbow & he will live long in our memories. Our thoughts and prayers go to Tim’s mother Jose and to Tim’s brothers and sisters.
