With the ongoing pandemic resulting in hundreds of football games being played out in empty stadiums, finding a suitable venue for the return of At The Match has proved a bit trickier than usual. Luckily, fans are allowed to watch one of the most interesting and vibrants clubs in South London, so Andy and Luke packed the microphones onto the P4 bus and headed to Peckham Town FC!
Set up by then 13-year-old Bryan Hall in 1982 after sticking a poster up on a tree in Peckham Rye park, the club has been built on the tireless work of hundreds of volunteers and remains a bedrock of local community. Andy and Luke speak to founder Bryan about how the club continues to represent the diversity and spirit of the area after forty years, while manager Mary Phillip explains how she got involved with the club and her experience as the first woman to manage a men’s team to success in an FA senior trophy. We even get to see some cracking football, as Peckham play some lovely stuff and stick five past Stansfeld!
