Kentish Express Ashford & District - - All The Week’s Action... -

The ar­ti­cle on Ray Knowler (Ray’s life­time in game, Ken­tish Ex­press, Jan­uary 23) brings back mem­o­ries. I joined Ash­ford South End foot­ball club at the age of 15 in 1953 while still at school and Ray was do­ing his Na­tional Sser­vice. My brother Ken played and Jimmy Dou­glas and Johny Brind were on the com­mit­tee. Be­cause I knew my 12 times ta­ble and they were all big­ger than me, I was made trea­surer. When we packed up (I think in 1955) I moved on to In­victa Press. I then got a bill for the rental of Vic­to­ria Park to Ash­ford South End. As we had no funds, I sold our shirts to In­victa Press to pay the bill. It took ages to get Johny Brind’s shirt as he was never in. Bob Brench­ley Kingsnorth Road, Ash­ford
