Chanting for Chatham Town
After a morning of canvassing in a cold but sunny Snodland, I headed up to Maidstone Road to watch Chatham Town FC take on Whyteleafe. I have never been to the club before so was thrilled to learn that they were established in the same year as my own beloved club Tottenham, and despite being in the Ryman League have won a few honours over the years. I was also pleased to meet Jeff, the Chairman of the Club, and Peter, the Secretary, and was given hot coffee and biscuits at half time - a very welcome treat given how cold it was. Sadly the result wasn't as good as the hospitality and the team lost 2 nil. But still it was an excellent display of local talent and I shall certainly be going to watch them again soon.
