Extremely sad news. We have learnt tonight that Malcolm Dickenson has died at the young age of 57., apparently of a heart attack. Dicko is one of the old players on our new montage in the Club House. The Dickenson family were part of the fabric of the club for a number of years. Malcolm made his debut on 6th March 1984 at Beveree against Boreham Wood (having joined from Feltham) wearing the No 3 Shirt. The last appearance was on 4th December 1994 against Saffron Walden Town sporting the No 4 Shirt. Dicko left the club midway shortly after and joined Staines Town, for whom he made several return visits to Beveree!. In all Malcolm made 452 appearances (450 starts, 2 subs ) and scored 23 goals. I seem to recall that he had a thunderous shot and was a 'firm' tackler.. In 1986/87 he made an impressive 63 starts (out of 67 games) and scored a career high 10 goals - not bad for a midfield/defender. In December 1987, Malcolm broke his leg which brought an end to his 1987/88 season. He did not re-appear in the team until January of the following season. My understanding is that Dicko and his family moved to the Borurnemouth area after he left Staines Town. Hampton awarded Malcolm a Testimonial, which took place on 10th April 1992, against an Arsenal XI. Malcolm's father Denis was on the Committee of the Club at the same time and was also part-time groundsman. My understanding is that Dicko and his family moved to the Bournemouth area after he left Staines Town.
