Play­ers brave the wet to make splash for char­ity

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - OPINION -

A CHAR­ITY foot­ball match went ahead in Ash­ford on Sun­day de­spite a rather soggy pitch. AMF Bowl­ing held a match at the Ash­ford Town Foot­ball Club to raise money for the Kent Air Am­bu­lance. Or­gan­iser Paul White said: “It was a bit boggy but it made the game a lit­tle more in­ter­est­ing. “It was quite com­i­cal be­cause the pitch was so wa­ter­logged ev­ery­one was fall­ing down in it.” Some 26 play­ers helped raise more than £600. The green team won the match 7-5.
