    I WAS A kINGSTONIAN FAN FROM THE TENDER AGE OF SEVEN, WHEN MY DAD TOOK ME TO ALL THE HOME GAMES. IN 1946 AFTER DOING FOREIGN SERVICE IN THE WRENS I WAS DEMOBBED AND RESUMED SUPPORTING THE Ks SITTING IN THE STAND IN FRONT OF ME I NOTICED A YOUNG MAN WHO IN HIS EXCITEMENT WAS SLOWLY SHREDDING HIS PROGRAMME TO PIECES. WE CHATTED AND EVENTUALLY I ACCEPTED A DATE WITH HIM. HIS NAME WAS DON STOKER. WE MARRIED AND ALTHOUGH HE LEFT THE Ks i NEVER DID. i WAS ALWAYS A SUPPORTER. i AM NOW 87 YRS OF AGE . lOOK BACK WITH FOND MEMORIES OF WALKING ALONG RICHMOND ROAD AND THEN STANDING ON THE TERRACE TO CHEER MY TEAM ON. ii HAVE STACKS OF MEMORIBILIA WHICH IWOULD LIKE TO PASS ON TO THE CLUB.. STACKS OF IT REGARDS PEGGY STOKER

    Oh my God, can’t help but cry when I saw those photos of Richmond road.My dad used to own the Blue spot cafe next to the ground and as a little boy I always watched the K’s always bunking in of course.One year I was so upset as my best friend got to be team mascot instead of me.i can remember it all as if it was yesterday and not 44yrs ago such happy happy memories RIP Richmond road gone but never forgotten, still always look for K’s results down here on the Sussex coast
