Alan was one of four generations of his family who have called Stonebridge Road home. He watched Northfleet United as a young boy and in 2017 received a Fleet Trust award to mark his long service as a supporter.
Alan served as secretary to the Supporters Association in the early 1990s and his most cherished moment came in his 78th year when the club won the FA Trophy at Wembley.
Martin, or ‘Hirsty’ as he was known to so many of his pals at football and on the club forum down many years, passed away in summer 2021.
Martin had many friends in the Fleet Lounge and social club, as well as amongst the wider fanbase both in and away from Stonebridge Road.
My dad Donald Henry Bowra passed away at the ground on 31st December 1994 at the end of the game.

Dad supported the club with his time by assisting with managing the teams in the 1970s and installed the original floodlights. He was recognised by the FA in 2010 for his services to football.
Through him my son and I have also followed the club. Although my first visit to the ground was a Reporter Cup Final in which Dad’s team was the losing side!
