An instantly likeable chap, Covolan suffered with depression and anxiety as he tried, and failed, to make his way in what is a short career through the leagues but ultimately ended up in Maidstone which, know it as I do, is not the most aesthetic or pleasing of places. Non-descript is how I would best describe the town, and the football club, and Covolan, until on this cold, brisk day when all of his stars aligned and he cemented himself in the annals of FA Cup history and grabbed his moment of triumph, humbly, but with a firm grip.

I wrote recently quitting things I love (downhill mountain biking and playing five-a-side football). Another consideration, which pains me to admit, was the watching of football. Like many of my countryfolk I have fallen hook, line and sinker, since early childhood, with the beautiful game and some of my most ecstatic memories have come via the vehicle of the sport, be it Barnet staying in the Football League in a last-day decider, or England providing yet another false dawn in a major tournament.
