Sad news about Kevin Charlton. His reputation was as one of the best keepers in Non League football in the 1980s. As for Wealdstone, I was lucky enough to be asked by the Non League Paper to cover Wealdstone’s game against Altrincham two weeks ago. I mused that the match between the two teams 35 years ago would have borne no similarity to the one I watched. For a start, both teams tried to play football, the surface was immaculate and no semi-psychotic malfeasants committed acts of near GBH on opponents. I reckoned that the 1985 game refereed by a 2020 official would have seen about half a dozen red cards before half time.
