Martyn Bowden


Martyn was known for his boldness and sturdiness when it came to his philosophy of soccer and style of play. He was born in Bolton but raised in Upton, England. The son of a working class family, he was proud of his roots. He graduated from Park High School in Liverpool and attended multiple colleges including University College London where he earned a Bachelor of Arts degree, an MA at the University of Nebraska and PHD from the University of California Berkeley. Martyn was a founding member of the Geography Department at Clark University in Worcester and became a professor of Historical and Cultural Geography. At Clark University he kept the field open for local kids to play. On the pitch, he earned the saying “Martyn’s Mountains” for his style of play, a tall, solid defense and lightning fast counter attack. Martyn was instrumental in the formation of Fuller Hamlets, based in Sutton, MA and developed some of the most formidable teams in MA and Region 1.
