Author: Ryan Mills, 13/09/20

Hamstreet and Lydd Grasshoppers pay tribute to local football legend

Former Ashford & District Sunday Football League registration secretary Bob Leaning was remembered this morning as teams from around the league held a minutes silence or applause as a tribute following his death earlier this year. Bob passed sadly passed away in June and his former club Hamstreet were one of many teams to pay tribute before their Division One fixture against Lydd Grasshoppers this morning at the Pound Lees Sports Ground.

Hamstreet, promoted from Division Two last season, suffered an opening weekend defeat despite goals from Joe Spicer and Connor Samson, as Grasshoppers picked up all three points thanks to a hat-trick from Shannon Hodson and a debut goal from Tyrone Alldis for Andy Bennett's side. Bennett, now in charge for Grasshoppers, previously played under Bob at Hamstreet helping the villagers lift the Bodkin Cup in 1998. He is pictured above (second from the left) alongside former Hamstreet players Mark Murray and Paul Longman.
