THE Border and wider soccer community is mourning the loss of Jock Glass.
In 2004 AWFA engaged the services of Glass as a sports medicine trainer to the girls’ representative teams.
His relationship with the world game spanned more than 60 years, including stints as a professional player in Scotland and coach of the 1987 gold medal-winning Australian Special Olympics soccer team.
After just recently losing his wife after 40 years of marriage Jock, 76, passed away in Launceston last Saturday of a suspected heart attack after coaching his under-11 soccer team.
Stephen Foden, the under-16 girls representative coach at the time Glass was involved in the game on the Border, said “Jock” would be sadly missed by all of the girls.
“He looked after them from 2004 to 2006 making the trip from Tasmania to wherever the tournament was,” he said.
“He took care of all injuries and had them back playing the next day.
“In 2005 we won every competition we played in much to the massive part played by him.
“His greatest achievement for us was helping us win the 2005 Victorian state under-17 championship.”
