Jacinto Francisco Fernández de Quincoces y López de Arbina (Barakaldo, 17 July 1905 — Valencia, 10 May 1997) was a Spanish football player and manager, as well as President of the Valencian Pilota Federation.

He played 25 matches for the Spain national football team from 1928 to 1936,[1] and was part of Spain's 1934 FIFA World Cup team. He was Spain's national coach in 1945, taking charge for two matches.[2]

Playing career[edit]

Management career[edit]

President of the FPV[edit]

Since Quincoces was a Basque pelota pala player before of being a football professional, when his career finished, he was chosen by the Francoist authorities as the President of the Valencian Pilota Federation, believing that Basque and Valencian handball sports were the very same. Quincoces declared to the press several times that he was unwilling of this task, but while he was in charge (last 60s and first 70s) he promoted new measures that resulted in profit for the Valencian pilota, such as the beginning of the Youth Championships, compulsory for the trinquets that wanted to host professionals tournaments, this was the way pilotaris as Genovés I and Xatet de Carlet began.
