CITY FANS AND CHASETOWN BUILD LINKS

Friendship in football was the order of the day when the Trust and the Supporters’ Club hosted our friends from Chasetown Football Club before the Middlesborough game.

The group of more than 70 from the Midlands football club, including the club chairman, manager and players, said they had enjoyed a fantastic day – apart from the result!

Cardiff City kindly provided tickets for the game while the Trust and Supporters’ Club laid on the hospitality at the Duke of Clarence pub in Canton. Landlord Eric Harmer organised skittles and table football for our guests.

At half-time Chasetown presented their hosts with a signed framed shirt. In response Vince Alm, on behalf of the Supporters’ Club, presented a signed shirt while the Trust gave Chasetown representatives a framed photograph of the new stadium. A Friendship in Football was presented by our friends John Franklin and Trevor Youngmans from Chasetown the Supporters’ Club.

And a representative from Chasetown was also given the honour of making the 50-50 draw.
