SE Dons vs. Sun FC

Record attendance for non first team game

The Gallagher Stadium saw a record non first team attendance at the weekend.

A crowd of 2,009 watched yesterday morning’s match between SE Dons and Sun FC in the final of the Kent Sunday Premier Cup.

SE Dons, based in south London, have built up a cult following – boasting the ‘best Sunday League Fanbase in the world’.

After pre-selling just shy of a thousand tickets, that number again paid on the day.

Dons ran out 4-0 winners after a blistering first half performance.

Club chief executive Bill Williams said: “It was quite an occasion – we’ve never had so many people in for a Sunday morning fixture!

“This summer we’re hosting more than 50 cup finals for various leagues and associations – it’s a very popular venue for these showpiece occasions.”

In the afternoon, the home of the Stones played host to the Kent Senior Trophy final between Chatham Town and Beckenham Town.

Chatham took home the silverware following a 1-0 extra time win.

Chatham’s team included former Stone Matt Bodkin, while Beckenham’s featured a legend from yesteryear in Nathan Paul (pictured below).
