A MESSAGE FROM CHRIS KING: THE MAN BEHIND FAVERSHAM TOWN'S MATCH HIGHLIGHTS

By Thomas Reeves

CHRIS King - the man behind the club's excellent match highlights in recent years - will not be producing match highlights from next season onwards.

“I have thoroughly enjoyed my association with the club and I have some great memories” Chris King

In an email, Chris, the father of former Faversham Town youth-team and first-team player Dan, said: "Dear Faversham Town Football Club,

"I’ve never actually held an official position at the club, but as a courtesy, I thought I would write to let you know that I will no longer be filming and publishing Faversham Town match highlights on social media.

"My association with the club started in 2012 when my son, Daniel, started playing for the U18 team and continued when he played for the first-team, the U21s and, more recently, the Reserves.

"I drifted into the filming side of things; having never done anything like that before, I took my camera along to one of the U18 matches to take some photos and also took some short video clips which happened to capture a goal and it all went on from there and, over the last seven years, I have uploaded almost 300 club related videos to YouTube.

"I have thoroughly enjoyed my association with the club and have some great memories.

"Having been a lifelong Gillingham fan, I never thought I’d have an involvement with non-league football, but the last seven years have introduced me to a whole new football world.

"As a member of 'The 92 Club', I have visited all the professional Football League grounds in England and Wales and I’m pleased to say that following Faversham Town has added a long list of non-league grounds to my list.

"For the last two seasons, I have been splitting my time between watching Faversham Town first-team and the Reserves, but now that Faversham no longer have a Reserve team, and so Daniel will be playing for a new club, I’ve decided the time is right to move on and I’ll be watching all Daniel’s matches for his new club next season.

"So, it just remains for me to say, thanks very much for the memories and I wish Faversham Town all the best for the future.

Kind regards,

Chris King"

Chris won a special award for his work at the end of the 2014/15 season and the club would like to thank him for his support over the past seven years, and wish Chris and his family all the best in the future.
