Played for a team called Juventus in Exeter at Barton Fields 1959 with Fred. My memory is that we played about 6 games, had 8 or 9 players and still managed to beat the opponents.
I remember seeing David Kemp driving through Southsea in a bright yellow Triumph Stag and being very envious. Dream car and dream job!
Great 100percent competitor Why did saints let him go
Loved Fred Kemp. All action. Kept Hugh Fisher out one season scoring some great goals, then we sold him! Never knew why.
I spent many happy days watching Southampton in the old first division.
Fred was my favourite player despite what
Terry Paine said.Thank you Fred for so much pleasure and that tippy toe style.
Fred was my favourite player at Southampton. He used to work his socks off every game, just great to watch. I hope he is well and looking forward to retirement. Regards from a Reading fan.
Freddie Kemp was our next door neighbour at Bonville Close Exeter. He was always great with us young boys. I remember him being very stylish - Italian mum. I think I remember he was transferred to Blackpool when they were in the First Division for ????45000 - a fortune. Freddie started with a bang - I think they made him captain. We were very young - didn't know too much of his football but he really was a great with us kids. Fred somewhere we have a picture of my younger brother Mike sat on your knee! Really fond regards Fred. David Shoulder
In the 60's I worked with Fred in the close season, we both worked together in a timber shop in Southampton, he spent may evenings at the Top Rank suite, we used to get together for a drink! happy days!
