How much do you know about the Cookham Dean Football Club? Did you know that it has been running for 128 years? Do you know what their crest represents? Have you even seen their crests? Martyn Newell has given some photos to answer some of these questions.

The Cookham club crest depicts Cookhams well known gateway, the blue bridge over the Thames, there is a Swan of course and cherries,

which were once found in abundance throughout Cookham Dean. Red for the team shirts and green for the change strip are the chosen colours. 


1879 (the year the British army had a fine away win at Rorke's Drift)
was the year our club was Founded.
