Up There Cazaly ! No 7
We look back at seasons 1955/56 and 1956/57
It's the era of such luminaries as Ron Saunders, Tommy Bickerstaff and Bob Hailstones. They and many others served the Angels with much distinction in what was a very different time for football. Imagine 6,730 spectators turning up for a Kent Senior Cup Semi final at The Old Angel Ground and watch the home side beat Tunbridge Wells United 2-0 and then for the final at Priestfield, Maidstone & District Motor Services Ltd (remember them!) running coaches and British Railways operating a special train to Gillingham via The Medway Valley Line. The Angels were to lose that final 2-0 to Folkestone.
