A World Tour of Kent Part Three: Whitstable Town

We've been careering around Kent visiting a collection of our football grounds and pointing a camera. Here's the highlights of our visit to the Belmont.

We headed to the Belmont, home of Whitstable Town, before heading to the beach and trying the oysters. We came to the conclusion that the burgers at the football club are far tastier and considerably cheaper!

The Oysterboys have had a positive pre-season, defeating local rivals Thanet Town and Deal Town before defeating Premier Division sides Cray Wanderers and Margate. A defeat against Folkestone Invicta and a draw with Chipstead has ended the sequence, and on Saturday they travel to Carshalton Athletic in the FA Cup. Their first home match this season is currently scheduled for October 10th, but there may be one prior to that dependent on Saturday's result.

The fixture board is blank because...well, there isn't a home match for a month!
