Margate v King's Lynn - February 7th, 1966

One of my pastimes is reminiscing over the "glorious past" of Margate FC. I say past, because for a variety of reasons, I am concerned about the future of MFC and the future of much of "grass roots" and non-league football in this country.

On February 7th, 1966, one of "those" games took place at Hartsdown Park. It's not very often that a side scores 6 away from home and still ends up on the losing side! But that's what happened to King's Lynn. I didn't go to the game, but apparently, Margate led by 5-1 at half-time. A second half collapse then ensued. Not too different from the events at Harrow Borough last Saturday.
