Radio 1 charity football match – Pilot Field mid 70’s by Matt Thomas

Matt Thomas… Dont know if anybody else on here remembers a charity football match up at the Pilot Field possibly mid 70’s.I recall my dad taking me i was about 6/7 and it was a Radio 1 side including Ed’Stewpot’Stewart,’Diddy’David Hamilton and im sure Tony Blackburn as well.Did i dream this or did it really happen? If it did anyone got any pics?

Karen Sweatman Was Blackman…  My husband remembers but no photos I’m afraid.

Leigh Wieland-Boys…  It happened! I was there, but can’t remember date/year, sorry 😀

Alan Esdaile… Anyone confirm which disc jockeys played?

Darren Holmes… was it part of Bobby Drake’s testimonial – United beat Chelsea 2-1 midweek and then played an all star XI at the weekend!

Mark Randall… I  remember the same suspects playing at a Tonbridge FC match. Also Fraser Hines.

Andy Gunton… I was there Mark!

Roy Penfold… I’ve got vague memories of that – together with the testimonial mentioned by Darren.

Andrew Clifton… I  was there Matt and Ed Stewart.

Sarah Harvey… I don’t think it was Bobby Drake’s testimonial because this was the line-up for that match .
