A BIG THANKYOU.

Recommended Posts

It was Big Ron (my grandfather) 80th Birthday last Friday.

We celebrated last night at the football club.

It was great to see some old players like Billy Edwards, Ian O'Connell, Buggsy, Elliot Martin, Mark Harrop and Mark Munday. However it was a touching sight to see when Sam Sodje turned up presenting Grandad with his Reading Shirt. It brought tears to his eyes and was a very touching moment for the whole family. Also the great Chris Kinnear came along capping off what was a fantastic evening.

I'd just like to say a huge thankyou to all those that came along in particular Tony M and our very own Dave who asked those old players to attend.

The family are touched that Grandad is that popular and is that highly thought of.

He is of course one of this football clubs finest Gentlemen.

 

A huge thankyou to all of you than came along and made this a very special night that he will remember for the rest of his life.

 

Paul

Congrats Ron, glad you had a great night, well deserved for such a great servant of the club. Chris Kinnear was at the cup game during the afternoon too as his son was plating for Tonbridge, guessed he would be at the party alongside some former great players.

Happy Birthday Ron for last friday. So sorry that I couldn't make it hopefully Billy Edwards passed on my best wishes and apologies for not being able to get there. You are one of the nicest guys I have met through football and hopefully I will get the chance to see you again soon aswell as everyone else at Margate. Again all the best Ron and everyone at Margate.
