Maidstone United F.C.

Recommended Posts

The great result for Maidstone in the  F A cup  1st round   brought back a memory I should like to share.  When my son a goalkeeper left Tonbridge Angels owing to a serious injury, he was asked  when regaining some sort of fitness to play for a Kent first division  Sunday league side.   On coming home one day he said " Dad  a strange thing occurred at todays match.  One of the teams playing on an adjacent  pitch seemed to have supporters . They wore replica shirts, carried flasks of coffees, had team scarves. Just like a senior  club crowd.",   I looked into this and found the team playing adjacent was non other than Maidstone United who a few years earlier had left the football league for whatever reason due to financial problems. They had reformed and started again in the 4th Division of the Kent football league.  Now they are knocking out  the likes of Cheltenham Town out of the cup.

I realise it is nothing new  to be a giant killing team , ( Look at Lincoln last season ) , that is not why I am writing, but in my little way to play tribute to those fans who supported their team through thick and thin through the years to get back their league status, which cannot be far off.   I would like to think  I would if called upon would do the same.  Would you ?
