70s TOWN STAR VISITS THE FULLICKS TO TALK ABOUT OLD DAYS

Former Folkestone Town – or more correctly – Folkestone & Shepway FC player Geoff Idle is coming back to Cheriton Road where he played during the middle years of the 1970s.

A stylish full-back, Geoff was brought to the club – which reverted to the name of Folkestone in 1980 by ex-Gillingham defender Dennis Hunt, to wear the Arsenal style red and white kit for the club that adopted the Shepway tag at the start of that period to help publicise the change of name of the district council.

That side included also included the likes of one time Arsenal youngster Micky Shovelar, centre back Kenny and winger Trevor Pearce – the latter transferred for a then sizeable fee to the Gunners themselves.

Others who played for Folkestone with distinction during that period were the legendary Pat Terry and ‘Clown Prince and club joker Micky Cook up front, not to mention local lad John Smith, a great friend of our manager.

Geoff, now 67, left school to join Chelsea as an apprentice and also played for Fulham at the higher levels before moving into the non-league game.

He has written a book about his years in non-league with Folkestone and Gravesend during which was the winning captain when The Fleet beat Maidstone 2-0 at London to win the Kent Senior Cup in 1980/81 with their second goal scored by Gary Aldous who went onto manager the North Kent club during the 1990s.

It was titled ‘Fulham and Back’ and published by Blurb Books, but may now be out of print.

Geoff will be in Bar Invicta before our big game against Dulwich Hamlet on April 21st  and would love to chat with fans who remember the Folkestone & Shepway days when the late David Setterfield was chairman of both the local club and the Southern League itself.

* Our District Council have only recently dropped the 'Shepway' name and reverted to Folkestone and Hythe District Council.
