A mixture of very sad and very happy happenings today concerning two wonderful servants to local football.
It is with great sadness that we hear of the passing of Marc Pepper, whose many roles included refereeing and league registration secretary. A humble man, who preferred to help people rather than wield a big stick, he will be greatly missed and we offer condolences to the family.
On a happier note, another stalwart, Bob Leaning, today received the 60 years Long & Meritorious Award from the Kent FA. Congratulations to Bob who is another that has served both Saturday and Sunday local football way beyond the call of duty.
