All at Slough Town Football Club were saddened to learn of the passing of former striker Bernie Gogan last week.
Bernie scored on his Slough debut at Dulwich Hamlet in October 1961 and went on to score 133 goals in just 177 matches. Hugely popular, good in the air and possessed of a powerful shot, he led the Rebels’ attack almost single-handedly before linking up with Peter Lowen to form a lethal goalscoring partnership during the championship season of 1964/65.
After leaving Slough in May 1966, he later featured for Hemel Hempstead Town and Chesham United before joining Hitchin Town. Whilst with the Canaries, he maintained his fine goalscoring record with 108 goals in 210 appearances - helping Hitchin to runners-up spot in the Isthmian League - and also scored twice in the London Senior Cup final in May 1970.
Bernie’s funeral will take place at 3:30pm on Wednesday 4 September at Crownhill Crematorium, Milton Keynes, MK8 0AH. Anyone wishing to attend would be most welcome and should use car parks 3 and 4.
We send our condolences to Bernie’s widow Marion and the rest of his family.
