Great team from the glorious past

Birthday greetings Friday to former stalwart Phil Swinard. Half of the legendary defensive partnership with the late Bob Watson, Phil played a major role in our progression from champions of the Ashford & District League into the old Kent Amateur League. He described his time at the Green as ” … the best days of my life”. Plying his trade at Carters Field and Capel Road, Phil made 72 senior appearances and notched 8 goals. All being well, Phil will be at a “Boys of 79” reunion in the Spring in our new pavilion.

29 December 1979 before meeting Whitstable OB in the Faversham Charity Cup at Carters Field. Phil is third from the right on the back row. Recognise them all? Gary Holloway, Keith Rowe, Paul Trice, Chris Watson, Phil, Paul Brenchley, Gary Ruddock. At the front, Mark Floyd, John Hadlum, John Barton, Mark Waters, Tony Beale.
