Arthur Hynd

PostedAugust 8, 2023

It is now our sad duty to report on the passing of another long-time Cowdenbeath fan. Arthur Hynd passed away on Saturday at Lindsay House care home in Lumphinnans after a short illness. Arthur supported Cowdenbeath FC all his days and will be well-known to many of our fans.

In 1977, after a meeting with CFC Chairman Charlie Gronbach, Arthur and his brother Pete were instrumental in establishing the Central Park Supporters Club which had its HQ under the old stand. Soon they were running buses to away matches, publishing a match programme and had revived the player of the year award. Over the years Arthur also worked on the gate and the turnstiles for the club and even lent a hand to the stock cars. He additionally gave a lot of his time to local youth football being involved with both Cowdenbeath District and then Blue Brazil Boys Club. Arthur continued to attend most Cowden home games until mobility issues made this more problematic.

All of us at Cowdenbeath FC, and I am sure we also speak for his fellow fans, would wish to pass on their sincere condolences to Arthur’s friends and family. He went the extra mile for his club – and Cowdenbeath FC could always depend on his loyalty and support.
