Paul Gray asks… Does anyone have any information/memories of this? I was there but can’t remember who played or much else! I think it was pretty sparsely attended and there were a few locals dressed as cowboys with cap gun six shooters! Anyone remember it?
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 .
