Biography: An outstanding football brain, Hinton was signed for 30,000 and could play at full back and in central defence, where he was dominating and rarely embarrassed. He was part of Sir All Ramsey's original 40 man World Cup squad but didn't make the final cut, however he did win League Cup and FA Cup winners medals. The arrival of David Webb in 1967 was supposed to signal the end of his stay in 5W6 but he hung around for another nine years taking his service to 13 seasons.

Marvin Hinton In Clive Batty's book Kings of the Kings Road it states Marvin played his last game at 46 for Eastbourne United. I know he played for Horsham at 40. Can anyone confirm the Eastbourne playing days ?

Hinton, Marvin A brilliant player for Chelsea at the back. A cool head under pressure. ..and not one to just boot the ball away ...but found other team mates with his accurate passing. It was a pleasure watching him play.

Hinton, Marvin I went to the same school with Marvin and was in the same class , even then I could see he was a wonderful football player , but he was hopeless at wood work and metal work . I have lived all my life overseas , and for the past 35 years have lived in Australia and would love to contact Marvin again , I would be very grateful if someone could put me in touch with him
